Ballet

Hold Me Closer, Tiny Dancer – Degas Interpreted

header-degas

Despite his prolific body of work, Edward Degas is most commonly associated with his ballet-inspired pieces, from his famous Little Dancer sculpture to his many peintures de ballerines. In the same way he was fascinated with ballet, Degas’ art continue to fascinate and inspire in many ways and forms – from a well-known French leotard brand named after him to, most recently, a bound-for-Broadway musical based on an interpretation of his Little Dancer sculpture.

Sometimes you can look at art and feel like it really speaks to you. Here are what the subjects in Edward Degas’ famous ballet paintings might be trying to say.
