Description

From the artwork of Edgar Degas “Green Dancer” Dance is a subject that is to mark his life as an artist. He is in admiration before the splendour of these dancers on stage.   Degas goes to where they are, to paint them as best he can in every detail, and it is for this reason that his work overflows with life. Beyond the fantasy that this milieu offers him, he sees a field of study that meets his conception of painting: movement, composition, atmosphere in the wings, and shows.

Degas - "Danseuse"

Edgar Degas (1834-1917)

Edgar Degas, peintre, graveur, sculpteur et photographe. Né dans   un milieu bourgeois cultivé il se passionne très tôt pour les courses de chevaux, puis pour la danse, l’opéra, les cafés-concerts et la vie quotidienne. La danse est un sujet qui marquera la carrière de Degas. Il est en admiration devant ces danseuses qui rayonnent sur la scène. Degas se rend sur place pour représenter du mieux qu’il peut les moindres détails, c’est pour cette raison que ses tableaux débordent de vie. Outre la fantaisie que lui offre ce milieu, il voit un champ d’étude conforme à sa conception de la peinture : mouvement, composition d’ensemble, rythme. Il s’intéresse à tout : les séances d’exercice, les répétitions, l’ambiance des coulisses et les spectacles. Dès les années 1890, l’artiste se concentre sur la figure de la danseuse en elle-même, sans se soucier de l’insérer dans un espace reconnaissable. Ici, dans Danseuses en bleu il s’agit de danseuses dans les coulisses, sans aucun détail qui permette d’identifier les ballets. Dans cette étude au pastel, il approfondit ses recherches sur leurs mouvements, privilégiant les lieux où, comme les salles de répétition et les loges, il peut observer leur vie quotidienne.

Edgar Degas is a painter, engraver, sculptor and photographer. Born into a cultivated bourgeois milieu he becomes, very early in his career, really interested in horse-racing and then dance, opera, café-concerts and daily life. Dance is a subject that is to mark his life as an artist. He is in admiration before the splendour of these dancers on stage.   Degas goes to where they are, to paint them as best he can in every detail, and it is for this reason that his work overflows with life. Beyond the fantasy that this milieu offers him, he sees a field of study that meets his conception of painting: movement, composition, atmosphere in the wings, and shows. From 1890 on, the artist concentrates on the figure of the dancer for itself without worrying about inserting it into a recognisable space. Here, in Dancers in Blue, the dancers are in the wings, without any detail revealing the actual ballet. In this pastel study, he deepens his research on their movements, giving preference to the places, like rehearsal studios and the dressing-rooms, where he is at ease to study their daily life.
