The Chorus

Edgar Degas “The Chorus”

The Chorus, which dates from 1877, is a work in bright pastels portraying a row of male choir singers on stage. The paintings has been stolen at the beginning of 2010, and there is no news about it being retrieved. The Musee d’Orsay had loaned “The Chorus” to a gallery in Marseilles, France for an exhibition on the work of Edgar Degas. Musee d’Orsay in Paris valued it at €800,000, correcting an estimate given by local police that it was worth some €30 million.
