The original work is dated 1884-1885 and is now kept at the Musée d'Orsay in Paris. A unique masterpiece and symbol of the classical period of Degas, it preannounces other paintings with the same theme created between 1890 and 1900. The painting shows six ballet dancers, very close and similar to each other. The tutus worn by the girls are transparent, soft and fluffy, effects rendered magnificently real by the artist's wise use of colours. The use of numerous images of ballet dancers in his masterpieces sometimes makes his painting appear reductive. "People call me the painter of the dancers, but actually I'm interested in capturing the movement," the artist once said to gallery owner Ambroise Vollard. Degas's painting is extremely innovative: it does not portray subjects in elegant and impeccable poses, but in spontaneous attitudes while engaged in daily life gestures such as arranging a strap of the tutu or looking out of a window. The painter is entranced by their movements, he studies their poses and behaviours, bringing them back into the painting with delicate and realistic colours. Degas's dancers recount a very hard world made of sacrifice, work and study, without dwelling on sentimentality. Degas's painting technique is influenced by Manet: the composition of his paintings is the result of careful study and most of his work is carried out indoors, after careful compositional calculations.
