This is Dancers by the artist Edgar Degas dated back to 1884-1885. Medium: PastelIt's displayed in the Musee d'Orsay in Paris, France. It was aquired by the museum in 1997. Edgar Degas has always been an artist that stuck out in my mind, particularly for his work on ballet dancers. I love how he uses one form of art as a muse for another. I have always been fascinated with the world of a ballerina and I think it's lovely how Degas displays them in every aspect of their craft. Here in particular we see the dancers resting.
