Dancers in Blue by Edgar Degas
Edgar Degas (19 July 1834 – 27 September 1917) was a French artist famous for his pastel drawings and oil paintings of ballerinas. Blue Dancers, sometimes referred to as Dancers in Blue, arrived in 1890. It is amongst the most famous Edgar Degas ballet dancer paintings. Ballerina are one of the artist’s favourite subjects, as they showcase an element of the artist’s character in his love for the allure of the rhythmic dance.
Colour is the essential element of the artwork as the bright shades grasp the viewer’s attention. The Blue Dancers are one of the only paintings by Degas where the artist opted for cool tones in order to depict the women.
