    (Green Dancer) 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. "Only when he no longer knows what he is doing does the painter do good things." - Edgar Degas (art.com)

Dancer. 1880. Edgar Degas. Pastel and charcoal on blue-grey wove paper. I love using pastels and charcoal, so I really love this piece!

Degas' Little Dancer // I unintentionally ran in to this at The Met a couple of years ago. I had been dying to see it for as long as I could remember. I wondered into a quiet room, and there she was. Another woman did the same, just as I, and we both looked at each other, tears in our eyes. It was so beautiful.
