Details

Our sculpture is reproduced from a 1920 bronze cast created from an original wax modeled about 1860-68 by Edgar Degas (French, 1834-1917). Limiting his subject matter to women, especially dancers, and to horses, Degas sculpted many variations of each figure in different poses in order to explore the dynamics of movement. Horseracing was one of Degas's lifetime interests, and he frequented the Longchamps racetrack to study thoroughbreds in action and in leisure in order to perfectly capture their grace and beauty in his art. The original Horse at Trough is now in the Museum's collection.

Specification

Made of bonded bronze (cold cast). "Cold-Cast" bronze (also referred to as "bonded bronze") is a product made from resin mixed/blended with 100% pure bronze powder to give it the appearance of the true bronze. It looks just as a "lost wax" bronze object does - both are bronzes. The cost for making a "lost wax" bronze statue is much greater than that of a "cold-cast" bronze statue. A sculpture made of "lost wax" bronze would be several times more expensive then made in cold cast bronze. Yet in either of the above materials, the casts (the final product made out of the mold) are made using the same rubber mold; which is taken from the original sculpture. Thus, the final result is exactly the same bronze sculpture, only made in a different bronze material. With the cold cast we still achieve the same bronze effect at much lower cost and thus is more affordable.
