The Blue Dancers, Oil by Edgar Degas (1834-1917, France). Blue Dancers is oil on canvas painting by the French artist Edgar Degas. It is painted in 1890. Degas painted a series of ballet dance related paintings and this is one of them. His dancers are beautiful in color and composition and highly appreciated by art critics. It depicts some dancers in blue dress. The painting is now in the collection of the Pushkin Museum of Fine Art, Moscow, Russia.
Degas "Dancers in Blue" - 1895 - I saw this print in the house I used to work in. I always thought it was beautiful, though I'm neither an art guru or a dancer. Still, it is pretty. ♥

The Little Fourteen-Year-Old Dancer; cast in 1922 from a mixed-media sculpture modeled ca. 1879–80 Edgar Degas
Edgar Degas was fascinated with the movement of dance and over half of his paintings are focused on this subject matter. Prima Ballerina is from 1876-77. www.edgar-degas.org/
Degas. How does he do this? The man's head is in the corner of the frame! His nose butts the edge! But brilliant nonetheless.
