“Dancers in Blue,” by Edgar Degas (1834-1917), exhibits Degas’ extraordinary depiction of natural, spontaneous movement, use of unusual angles and brilliant composition. Shunning the Impressionists’ fascination with natural light and painting outdoors, Degas preferred to be called a Realist, implementing daring compositional innovations that broke from traditionally balanced arrangements, profoundly influencing later artists such as Toulouse-Lautrec and Picasso. Degas was drawn to theatrical subjects, including racecourses, cafés and music halls, and made sketches from living models to capture their spontaneity, later completing the paintings in the studio.
French Impressionist painter Edgar Degas, one of the great artists of the world, is most known for his paintings of girls dancing at the ballet which make up over half of his total work. Considered to be a founder of Impressionism, Degas (1834 – 1917) nonetheless rejected the movement’s penchant for painting outdoors and portraying natural light. Intent on capturing poses as natural and spontaneous as a photograph, his studies of female dancers are celebrated as supreme masterpieces and mark him as an innovator in his own right. Degas completed paintings in his studio that originated as sketches of living models, strongly influencing later artists such as Picasso and Toulouse-Lautrec.
