I love this work by Deags. So good to see him work in 3D

Howard Mason
Saw this in London and was mesmerized by its beauty and technique. You look at this and all the crap thats eats you up in this world evapourates.

Nancy LeBrun
This one is much more powerful and beautiful (and still delicate) in person - worth going to see.

My favourite since I was a girl of ten, visiting the Tate Gallery with my mother every Saturday. I would walk around and around it marvelling at the shape of the posture and the texture of the tutu.

I saw this neat work at the Art Institute in Chicago many years ago. Thanks Pete for "liking" it and bringing it back to my attention. I hope you put your album together soon. It was a terrific sculpture- the bronzed textiles were so special.

loving young girls was not such a sin at the time, thinking of Luis Carrol and Egon Shiele. Beuty has the price of being regardless of common sense and wrong or right

Elegance, style and sophistication. Apotheotically!.

To Howard Mason - i saw this in Los Angeles and felt the same way. Nicely expressed.

"Of all the people I know, he is the only one who is able as reflecting the reality, to represent the best spirit the contemporary sex". (Edmond de Goncourt, 1894) - Wikipedia

Pinto las tinieblas detras. La bailarina es negra, y no le habra ido muy bien en esa epoca.
La luz es la particular e ilumina el cuerpo desde el costado; puede provenir de una ventana o de una puerta.

Hay mas luz abajo, procedera de un respiradero, como escribio Leonardo?

Creo que es una escultura de Degas, en el Metropolitano en NY
