<p>Edgar Degas (1834-1917) was a French artist who worked in painting, sculpture, drawing, and printmaking. He is considered to be one of the founding fathers of Impressionism, even though he preferred to be called a realist artist. In his early career, Degas focused on historical subjects, but he later turned his attention to more contemporary subjects and images of modern life. Degas’ works often depict the art of dance, horse racing, and the female nude form.</p>
<p>The heavily impastoed surface suggests that Degas worked directly and extensively on this picture, building up passages of oil paint with brushes and his fingers. By mixing his colors with white to make them opaque, and by applying his pigments thickly and in several layers, he approximated the pastel technique that he had perfected in the 1880s. Degas punctuated the composition with the shadowy profile of a top-hatted patron of the Paris Opera, who enjoys the privilege of dallying with the dancers in the wings during a performance.</p>
