Dancers in the Wings by Edgar Degas

Dancers in the Wing created by Edgar Degas in France, 1876, done in mixed mediums of pastels, gouache and distemper. Degas frequently used ballerina dancers as subjects for his works of art. He used various mediums on this particular piece which gives it a lot of detail and texture, which is why I was so taken with it. The piece is currently on view in the Norton Simon Museum of Art in Pasadena, California.
