Although Degas is principally known as a painter, sculpturing was almost as important in his life. He began seriously to sculpt when he was in his early forties and, although he probably had no thought of exhibiting most of his sculpture, his modeling increasingly became a major part of his work. At the time of his death his studio contained more than one-hundred and fifty wax models which he had made of dancing girls, race horses and women working or bathing. With failing eyesight, sculpting became his principal medium of expression at the end of his career.
"Everyone has talent at twenty-five. The difficulty is to have it at fifty."
Edgar Degas (1834-1917)
