Beautiful "museum Quality Approved" Framed Dagas Double Matted Print For Sale
This is a beautiful print of the original artwork by the famously talented French artist, Edgar Degas, showing a ballerina's dance class. Measures 21.5"H x 17.5"W with frame.Signature visible on the bottom right.Ready to hang, labeled "Museum Quality - Approved" on the back of the piece.
Edgar Degas captures the movement and grace of the ballerinas as they dance across the composition. Soft, delicate hues are employed to create the fabrics of the dancer’s costumes and the air of performance in the atmosphere. The original pastel markings are evident in this print as the impressionistic strokes are spread across the artwork. Muted hues are highlighted with pinks and blues to bring color and interest to the piece. The lightness of the dancers’ skin brings a bright glow to the piece.
The special talent of Edgar Degas lay in his ability to find unfamiliar beauty in the passing scene. This is evident in this particular print as he is able to capture the movement of the dancers. He isolated, with a sharp eye, the significant gestures and movements of people at work, and presented them with dramatic force. What we now regard as Degas’ unique sense of composition- the subtle placement of his figures within the frame of his canvas stems from several sources; the drawings of Giovanni Bellini which he had seen and studies in Italy, the Japanese woodcuts which he enjoyed and collected, and the new art of photography. This print is double matted, with zero fade, finished with matching gold wood frame that adds to the delicate beauty of the artwork. I also have a matching piece Degas Piece in my store with a similar subject matter.Happy offerding these won't last!
