Three ballerinas in your living room
Trois danseuses (jupes bleues, corsages rouges), a pastel painting dating from around 1903, captivates the viewer with the rich nuances of its vibrant palette. Edgar Degas produced countless paintings of ballerinas in Paris around the turn of the century. He takes a close-up, intimate look at the daily lives of female dancers. Degas’ choice of realistic motifs is married with an increasingly abstract handling of his materials. The result is a fascinating visual feast.
