The Dancing Class – Degas


SKU: N/A Category:


The Dance Class by Degas allows you to witness the grace and elegance of 19th century French ballet through the flowing white tutus, the pink ballet slippers, and dainty black chokers that the dancers wear in this piece. The painting is filled with life as the dancers, dressed in delicate white tutu’s, leap through the air or patiently wait for their chance to shine.  The peaceful green of the wall and the gentle wood tone floors give the whole piece a relaxed feel. There is other subtle use of color such as a splash of a red bow or a pale blue sash give the piece even more life. 

Degas work, The Dance Class, makes use of dazzling colors and a gentle light effect to give the in-the-moment feel that is at the heart of Impressionism. The Dance Class is a classic that would add to anyone’s home. The combination of white tutus and a green and brown background provide a soothing work that would match many different wall colors in your home and add an element of relaxation and fun in any room. The details and eye-catching complexity make you have a different feel for it each time you look at it.
