Edgar Degas

Marie dreams of becoming the most famous ballerina in the world, but it is hard to find enough money for lessons. At last she begins modeling for the artist Edgar Degas, well-known for his paintings of dancers and horses and for his fiery temper. When his beautiful sculpture of "The Little Dancer" is finished, Marie's dream comes true.

Complete with reproductions of Degas' work, this is another inspirational story from Laurence Anholt's bestselling series, celebrating some of the world's greatest artists and the real children who knew them.

Synopsis:

Young Marie wants to be a ballerina, but her parents have no money for lessons. She must earn what little money she can as an artist's model at a ballet school. Then, her life takes an unusual turn when she models for the famous sculptor, Edgar Degas.This is a title in Barron's Anholt's Artists Books for Children series, in which author and illustrator Laurence Anholt recalls memorable and sometimes amusing moments when the lives of the artists were touched by children. Anholt's fine illustrations appear on every page and include reproductions of works by the artists.
