The blue dancers - Edgar Degas

This work by Edgar Degas reveals a moment that is supposed to be hidden from the audience before the curtain rises. In a colorful and luminous setting, the artist lingers on the daily gestures of these dancers, who are preparing to go on stage: the adjustment of the bodice, the final touch to the hairstyle, the warm-up gestures... A moment full of reality is thus immortalized by a canvas full of life and movement.

L'œuvre en bref

This work by Edgar Degas reveals a moment that is supposed to be hidden from the audience before the curtain rises. In a colorful and luminous setting, the artist lingers on the daily gestures of these dancers, who are preparing to go on stage: the adjustment of the bodice, the final touch to the hairstyle, the warm-up gestures... A moment full of reality is thus immortalized by a canvas full of life and movement.

The artist

Born in Paris into a wealthy bourgeois family, Edgar Degas (1834-1917) quickly abandoned his law studies. An avid visitor to the Louvre Museum, he showed an exceptional aptitude for drawing by copying artists such as Rembrandt. Living on the family fortune and not seeking financial gain for his art, he studied painting in 1855 in the studio of Louis Lamothe, a student of Ingres. The artistic legacy of Ingres fascinated Degas and inspired him throughout his life. Considered an impressionist, Degas claimed to be a realist. However, he participated in several Impressionist exhibitions from 1874 to 1886. In the early 1870s, Degas suffered from progressive blindness. Blinded by the sunlight, he will paint almost only interior scenes, with artificial lighting, unlike the impressionists of his time.
