Pastel can create such unique color effects. Blue Dancers (1899) is a pastel painting by Edgar Degas (1834-1917). Degas loved to paint a group of dancers in rehearsal or while waiting in the wings before their performance. His compositions are often cropped, and this is a feature inspired by his passion for photography. You can clearly see how he cuts off certain body parts at the edges of his painting, something that was very rare in paintings before the rise of photography. #Art #Painting #Artwork #ArtHistory #HistoryofArt #PastelPainting #Pastel #Degas #EdgarDegas #Dancing #Dancers #Blue #BlueDancers #FrenchArt #FrenchArtist #FrenchPainter #Photography #Cropped #Unique #PushkinMuseum #Pushkin #Museum #Moscow
