A reproduction of Edgar Degas' Two Dancers on a Stage, it was originally painted using oil on canvas in 1874.
Regarded as one of the founders of Impressionism – despite his vocal rejection of the term – Degas was born in Paris in 1834, and studied at the prestigious École des Beaux-Arts. Known for his evocative portraits and vibrant depictions of movement, his work often sought to show modern life captured in everyday locations. Post 1870 his work focused on ballet dancers, trying particularly to convey a sense of their movement and grace. Struggling with eyesight problems late into his life, he delved into photography and sculpture, but it is as an excellent draftsman and painter than he is most renowned.
