Ecole De Danse
HeatherD (11/05/2014)
I bought a framed picture of Degas' Ecole de Danse from a thrift store. It is 27"x36". The picture itself appears to be very old and is cracking. It also has a dark bluish tint compared to the other pictures I've seen online. Some of the picture is starting to flake off, and the substance seems to be either oil pastel or oil paint. I was wondering if anyone could tell me more about this, as I am very intrigued by it, but scared to take it out of the frame because I don't want to ruin it. Does anyone know if this could be an original print or fake?

Embossed Fleur de Lys
MarkB (11/02/2014)
I cant seem to find anything definitive. Although I do Find broad reference to Degas and fleur de Lys, I am loking to find out if he used the stamp on any of his sketch works, and/or more specifically Stamp on blue paper.

Single Ballerina Dancer
Romeo (06/24/2010)
I have a 20" x 16" of a Ballet Dancer which is on thin blue paper glued to brownish old carboard. The dancer is colored in purple, white with red and black and is signed on the bottom left corner in black.It came in a old silver leave frame. At first I thought it was an old print, untell I took it out of the frame, then my heart pounded as I felt and smelled the coloring and yes it is oil pastels. Can anyone tell me anything about this little treasure. Thanks

edgar degas
Sasa (11/24/2009)
Dears, These two ballerinas are long time in family heritage, maybe since Edgar Degas time. But family scattered that time, during World War I and WW II. Some time ago I saw these two ballerinas identical in some magazine (worth more then 10 million usd, unbelievable) but unfortunately I have lost that article, even shadows match. These two ballerinas were hanging on the kitchen wall since I made first steps ;-) Nobody knew really value, until one day they just showed up in that magazine. We were talking this is from grand grandfather....... but unfortunately I don't remember him. My father checked them already one time, but unfurtunately documents of expertise are lost during moving. Kind regards! Sasa

Degas Print or original
BETH (05/15/2008)
I have a Pastel of a ballerina bent over signed by Degas. If you look closely it seems there is a foot sketched into the tutu. Looks like the foot could be holding the ballerina down? (my perception anyway). This is framed very nicely and rather large. Probably 20 x 30?? The frame is very antique. I havent taken out of frame to inspect any closer. I havent seen this exact drawing anywhere. Any idea if this could be an original?

Degas print
Marcy (01/14/2007)
I have a Degas print that was framed in a shop in San Francisco named Helgesen's, that was in business between 1897 and 1921. I don't know if it's a drawing, a reproduction, a lithograph, or an etching. It's a close up of two ballerinas, and is signed Degas in the lower left hand corner. Does anybody have information that could help me find out?

Degas in New Orleans
Lonnie Dunbier (07/10/2006)
Edgar Degas was in New Orleans between 1872 and 1873. His mother, Marie-Celestine Musson DeGas, and her siblings were born in New Orleans, but the family moved to Paris in 1819. In the 1830s, DeGas's father, J.B. Germain Musson, and a son, Michel, returned to New Orleans, and the son became a cotton merchant. In 1865, two other brothers came over to New Orleans, and established a cotton brokerage house, DeGas Brothers. Edgar remained in Paris to study law, and the family visited him in Paris. However, in 1875, having altered his name to Degas, he came to America with his New Orleans brother, Rene DeGas, who was coming back to NO from Paris and brought Edgar with him. The docked in New York City, and took the train to N.O., arriving October 28, 1872. Degas stayed with the Musson family in a rented house at 372 Esplanade. He made many sketches and did family portraits, including "Cotton Market in New Orleans", a painting that he exhibited in 1876 at the second Impressionists exhibit in Paris and which became one of his most famous works. Degas stayed in New Orleans for four months on that visit. Source: John Mahe, "Encyclopaedia of New Orleans Artists, 1718-1918"
