This beautiful Original charcoal drawing of a dancer is stamped "Degas" in red ink lower left. When the contents of Edgar Degas studio were sold by Galeries Georges Petit in 1918 and 1919 the works were stamped either with the "Degas" signature or the "Atelier" stamp, in ink. Degas rarely signed his works, particularly sketches, usually only when he sold them.

The seller, wjawsk, Oak Brook, Illinois, United States. Feedback:100% Positive. Member: since Mar-13-98 in United States:
Paul Klee was one of the greatest colorists in the story of painting, and a skilled utilizer of line. His paintings have an undercurrent of humor, and his powers of formal invention seem infinite. Klee died relatively young of a slow and wasting disease. His death is horribly mimicked by the death of peace that signified World War II. His last paintings are unlike any of his others. They are larger, with the forms often enclosed by a thick black line, as if Klee were protecting them against a violent outrage. The wit is gone and there is a huge sorrow, not for him personally, but for a foolish and wilful humanity. This painting is representative of this style. This work of art signed 'Klee.' measures 24.5 x 29 inches with the frame and 15.25 x 19.5 inches without the frame. This work was donated through the generosity of an estate of a couple who were life-long art collectors to the seller, Humanitarian Services Project. HSP is a not-for-profit agency in West Chicago, Illinois that has served the poor for many years. All proceeds of the sale will go to Humanitarian Services Project. There is no provenance or COA available and Humanitarian Services makes no guarantee as to the authenticity of the work. Terms of sale will be "as is" and will not be subject to return to seller for any reason. Thank you for your interest, and we will do our best to answer any questions you may have on this piece.
