Dancer Tilting - by Edgar Degas > I enjoy the piece which focuses on one dancer as opposed to Degas' other paintings, many of which are brilliant, too, which seem to capture a scene at ballet class or a group performing. It's also an interesting pallet...I have to wonder how true it is to the original work. Impressionist Art, Ballerinas, Edgardegas, 1883 Edgar, Ballet, Edgar Degas, Painting, Girls Rooms, Dancers Tilt

Degas ~ The Little Fourteen-Year-Old Dancer; cast in 1922 from a mixed-media sculpture modeled ca. 1879–80 Edgar Degas (French, 1834–1917) Bronze, partly tinted, with cotton skirt and satin hair ribbon, on a wooden base
Edgar Degas was famous for his unconventional portraits of ballet dancers. Instead of catching them in moments of beauty, he painted snapshots, unguarded moments, like reading the newspaper! Absolutely LOVE Degas dancer paintings
Though considered a member of the original core group of French Impressionists, Edgar Degas (Hilaire Germain Edgar Degas), always stood apart, both in his approach to painting, in which he considered himself a realist rather than an Impressionist, and in his emphasis on drawing.
