Degas showcases a large group of dancers, both standing and sitting, arranged in an undefined row which spans the length of the rehearsal space, with the focus of this piece being the dance teacher, Jules Perrot and his star pupil. The details of this scene evokes feelings of Parisian culture and elegance through the elaborate composition and finely balanced green and white colour palette.  Painted by Degas between 1871 and 1874 this painting remains among one of the most popular images in 19th century art.

The Artist

EDGAR DEGAS

Edgar Degas (1834 – 1917) was a highly celebrated French impressionist artist of the 19th century famous for his pastel drawings and oil paintings of ballerinas, Degas helped shape the fine art landscape throughout modern art history. 

Edgar Degas studied at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris and became renowned as a portraitist, fusing Impressionistic sensibilities with traditional approaches. Degas enjoyed capturing female dancers - as movement and the human form was his artistic playground, Degas showcased the contrasting awkward humility of the dancer backstage with her majestic grace in the midst of performance. His work influenced several major modern artists, including Pablo Picasso. 

One thing remains undeniable about Degas: His art was among the most painstakingly polished and refined paintings in history.
