Executed in wax and dressed in a ballerina's tutu, Little Dancer Aged Fourteen caused a sensation when it was exhibited in 1881. It is the only sculpture Edgar Degas ever showed publicly, though more than one hundred--including dancers, horses, and bathers--were found in his studio after he died; all were dusty, and some had fallen apart.
