Ballerina Doll, Charlotte


Sure to be a favorite with aspiring young dancers, Charlotte, our soft cotton ballerina in a tulle tutu, is named after the younger sister of Marie van Goethem, the subject of the famous Little Dancer sculpture in The Met collection by Edgar Degas (French, 1834–1917). The artist’s interest in ballet dancers intensified in the 1870s, and eventually he produced approximately 1,500 works on the subject.
