English: Edgar Degas’s famous sculpture of a dancer, that is now in the Boijmans Van Beuningen Museum collection, really needed a new ribbon in her hair. Her current ribbon, which had been tied around her bronze ponytail in the ‘nineties, was too obtrusive in both colour and size. After some research by a textile restorer, a new ribbon was chosen - one that looked more like the one Degas gave the dancer himself in 1881. This video shows how in April 2011, just before the opening of De Collectie Verrijkt [The Collection Enriched] and under the watchful eye of various experts, the dancer had a new ribbon placed in her hair.
