Halted Horse by Edgar Degas

New product

Although he is best known as a painter, since the 1860s modelling has become an increasingly important part of Edgar Degas' work and at the end of his career he became his main medium of expression.

If he turned to the same subjects - horses, dances, bathing women - it is because these sculptures were only intended to improve his paintings.
The chronology of these sculptures are very difficult to establish and are based mainly on stylistic criteria, his increasingly free technique and his confident analysis of movement. It is believed that his first sculptures were of horses.

The "Halted Horse", of which the Louvre also houses the wax original, is doubtless former to 1881, while the *Cheval marchant au pas relevé must be related to the pastel work entitled At the Races of 1885.

During the period of 1881-1890, Edgar Degas multiplied his studies of galloping, jumping, rearing, horses for which split movement photographies realized by the American Muybridge were an important aid.
