The Pink Dancers, Before the Ballet - Edgar Degas

In search of essentiality, Edgard Degas followed the dancers of the Paris Opera during their regular training, backstage and on stage. The artist produced a large number of works dedicated to them, all as varied in their themes as in the techniques employed. In this work, the gestures that he suggests through pure lines and dazzling colors have a surprisingly expressive value.

The artwork in a nutshell

In search of essentiality, Edgard Degas followed the dancers of the Paris Opera during their regular training, backstage and on stage. The artist produced a large number of works dedicated to them, all as varied in their themes as in the techniques employed. In this work, the gestures that he suggests through pure lines and dazzling colors have a surprisingly expressive value.

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.
