A bronze cast of one of Edgar Degas’ signature ballerina figures will be available in the upcoming Impressionist and Modern Art Day Sale offered by Christie’s.Degas was a leader in Impressionist art around the turn of the century. The sculpture available in this auction is a 1952 bronze cast of his original wax model, first formed between 1895 and 1905. Other featured Impressionist artists include Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Paul Gauguin, and Camille Pissarro.
Following the Impressionists were waves of Modernist painters and sculptors. Giorgio de Chirico’s Il Trovatore was painted in the early 1950s, following the Metaphysical art movement that de Chirico helped launch. A geometrical human form is shown taking a step in front of a Spanish-style building, complete with de Chirico’s signature long shadows and vaguely menacing light. A nearly monochromatic oil painting of a horse, rider, and village by Marc Chagall will be highlighted as well. To view these lots and register for online bidding, visit Christie’s.
