Degas La Petite Danseuse Earrings

In 1881, French Impressionist, Edgar Degas (1834-1917) created his well-known wax sculpture, La Petite Danseuse (The Little Dancer). These delightful earrings made of pewter finished in gold take their inspiration from this famous work. They measure 1 ¾ high and have surgical steel earwires.

Dance and opera like that seen at the Met have shared the stage and influenced each other for centuries.

Reproduced from adaptations of original design (c. 1881)

  • Pewter with gold finish
  • Surgical steel earwires
  • 1 3/4" H

In classic or contemporary ballet, dancing may tell a story, express a mood, or simply reflect the music in movement. Ballet as part of staged performances originated in the Italian Renaissance courts of the 15th and 16th centuries and from there spread to France. The creation of classical ballet as we know it today occurred during the reign of the art-loving French king Louis XIV in the mid-17th century. During the Romantic era, ballet technique evolved to express new ideas, most notably with women dancing en point, or on their toes, allowing them to appear weightless and otherworldly.
Among the choreographers who helped bring ballet into the modern age by exploring new visual and dramatic styles are George Balanchine, Antony Tudor and—bridging the worlds of classical dance and Broadway—Agnes de Mille and Jerome Robbins.
