Influenced by his own childhood in 1950s Yorkshire, Nigel Mason creates a touching sense of nostalgia and youth in his paintings and sketches.
This artwork harks back to the girlhood dream of ballet and tutus, creating a contrast to some of the more mature figures and costumes of his other works.
This sweet representation of the bond between youth and ballet draws comparison with Edgar Degas’ famous sculpture ‘The Little Fourteen-Year-Old Dancer’ (1922), which still attracts thousands of viewers to The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York every day.
