Art.com The Dance Foyer at the Opera on the Rue Le Peletier Framed Art Print by Edgar Degas
"The Dance Foyer at the Opera on the Rue Le Peletier" by Edgar Degas (1872) This painting takes me back to my younger days, when I attended ballet class twice a week. In fact, I used to have a silk screen picture of this exact painting (I probably still have it somewhere--I just can't find it!). Degas' ballet class scene brings back fond memories. Degas was a master of anatomy in dancers, and perfectly captures every single ballet position without a hitch.
