"The Star (L'Etoile)"

"The Star (L'Etoile)"
Edgar Degas
Pastal on Paper

I really like how the artist took this painting from an elevated point of view. You have to opportunity to see the whole ballerina's tutu. However, the back of her tutu disappears. The ballerina is the focus point in this painting. The figures in the background are blurred and you can hardly point out any figures, just shapes. This may be adding to the fast movement of a dancer's life.
