Famous for his Impressionist paintings of ballerinas, Edgar Degas was also an accomplished sculptor. He made over a hundred sculptures in wax and clay, some of which were later cast in bronze. Spend an afternoon among galloping horses and dancing ballerinas, then head to the studio and use clay to make your own creation.
