The French artist Edgar Degas (1834-1917) experimented with expressing movement in his paintings and sculptures.

Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek is now presenting the museum’s complete collection of the artist’s bronze sculptures.

Degas is best known as a painter, but as concomitant to his paintings, he modelled sculptures in wax in order to understand better the body in motion.

The more than 70 bronze sculptures represent some of Degas’ favourite motifs: balancing dancers, galloping horses and women in the process of their morning toilette.

The new display can be seen from 2nd March to 31st December 2010.
