Rehearsal

Despite being an impressionist, Degas claimed that a "brushstroke" was not enough to give shape to things, but that the clear definition of the form itself was necessary, made through the artist's memory. Even in this picture we see reality not expressed in a meticulous and boring way, but as Degas recalls it. The dancers of Degas are portrayed in the moment before the ballet and are represented in spontaneous attitudes.

Imported product
It is an oil on canvas measuring 69x103 cm, painted in 1877 and preserved in the Glasgow Art Gallery. Despite being an impressionist, Degas claimed that a "brushstroke" was not enough to give shape to things, but that the clear definition of the form itself was necessary, made through the artist's memory. Even in this picture we see reality not expressed in a meticulous and boring way, but as Degas recalls it. The dancers of Degas are portrayed in the moment before the ballet and are represented in spontaneous attitudes: those who rest, those who get bored, those who take a break and those who are anxious for the beginning of the show. Depicted in everyday attitudes, the dancers are observed from afar and based on a whole new perspective. Precisely because of his ability to paint moments of daily life, secretly grasping it, without letting his subjects pose, Degas is known as the painter of the "keyhole." The vanishing point is moved to the left and it seems that the scene it is all concentrated on that side, as if the spectator peered through the crack of a door. On the right side there is an empty space that gives sense of spatiality to the scene. The light enters through the large windows illuminating the whole hall and the dancers, while beyond the windows one can see a Parisian landscape, outlined with rapid brushstrokes.
