In his attempt to catch the action of the moment, his ballet dancers and female nudes are in poses that make no attempt to conceal the subjects' physical exertions. His later pastels, like Danseuse Verte (Green Dancer, 1880) have an elegance unsurpassed by any of his earlier works.
Degas' mastery of oil pastel is evident in the free-flowing grace of this dancer rehearsing her performance. From her outstretched arm to delicate extended leg, the artwork -- here interpreted as a statue -- bespeaks true mastery. We are fortunate to have this masterful reproduction of Degas? famous oil pastel, Danseuse Verte (Green Dancer), because it adds a new dimension to our understanding of his artistry.

EDGAR DEGAS (1834-1917) Together with Monet the founder of French Impressionism, Edgar Degas was famous for his innovative compositions in his paintings and later in his sculptures. Degas created a tremendous amount of artworks. For an example, just with his ballerina images and sculptures, the surviving artworks total more than 1,500 plus in various stages of development (sketches, prints, monotypes, paintings, drawings and sculptures). For 10 years he sketched the young women training and then reused the sketches for new artworks during the next 40 years. The early rehearsal scenes were done in oil; and in 1878, he started using pastels for his dancers, nudes and horse-track scenes.
