Framed 1950s Degas Colour Plates (Pair)


When one thinks of Degas, you automatically visualise his famous ballet dancers, voyeuristically captured through the eye of the artist almost as if he is hiding in the wings. These bathing nudes are painted in a similar way, as if the subjects are unaware of the artists presence. Their bodies shown in natural or even slightly awkward poses, demonstrating the true essence and intrinsic beauty of the female form- aren’t the beautiful!
Although the frames are almost identical, they do differ ever so slightly in size and shade.
I think these would look fantastic in a bathroom, but I would suggest that it be a well ventilated space so as not to cause buckling to the plates- perhaps a guest bathroom or loo?
Otherwise a bedroom, or part of an existing gallery wall would do just as nicely!
Both are in excellent condition, with only a few tiny spots of wear to the frames.
