Degas' Plastic Work Displayed at Bulgarian National Gallery
The Bulgarian National Art Gallery in Sofia is hosting an exhibition of what is said to be a significant part of Edgar Degas' sculptural oeuvre.
The exhibition will officially open Thursday at 18.30 EET and will last through October 29.
Consisting of 74 statues (out of around 150 ever created by the artist), it revolves around the themes of dance, horses and female dress – topics dear to Degas’ work as a whole.
The collection is owned by the M.T. Abraham Center for the Visual Arts in the USA and thus far has been shown only in Tel Aviv and Athens.
It features a bronze cast of Degas' "Little dancer of fourteen years," a wax sculpture which is the only statue that the French artist himself displayed while alive.
The exhibition is curated by former National Gallery director Boris Danailov. It is organized by the Embassy of France in Bulgaria and the Bulgarian Ministry of Culture.
