Pastel Drawing of Ballerina Lacing Up Her Pointe Shoe
I found this pastel painting today at a thrift store for $6. The exposed portion is about 11 inches by 14.5 inches. I can’t read the artist’s name but it sort of looks like it might be something like Sam Gaby or Sari Gaby. I don’t know. It is dated ’02 (2002). It came nicely matted and framed. There is a sticker on the back stating “Custom framing provided by Rochester Picture Framing Inc in honor of Edgar Degas: Figures in Motion”. I did a search and found that the Edgar Degas: Figures in Motion exhibit was at the Memorial Art Gallery from October 13th, 2002-January 5th, 2003. I am not sure if they had artists doing Degas inspired paintings for the show? Below is the artist’s signature
