In conjunction with Stair Sainty Gallery's upcoming exhibition, Degas: Little Dancer Rediscovered, Dr Gregory Hedberg; the author of the new book Degas' Little Dancer, Aged Fourteen - The earlier version that helped spark the birth of modern art, will be giving a lecture on Thursday 4th May, 6pm at the Lansdowne Club, Mayfair.
Dr. Hedberg’s lecture explores the various problematic findings regarding the physical state of Degas’ Little Dancer wax sculpture today and how the recently discovered plaster helps to explain these puzzles. The influence of Degas’ Little Dancer in 1881 on Whistler, Manet, Sargent and Seurat will also be explored.
