About Group of Dancers

The artwork “Group of Dancers” by Edgar Degas, dated approximately between 1900 and 1905, is an oil on canvas embodying the Impressionist movement. With dimensions of 47 x 62.2 cm, this genre painting is part of the collection at the Scottish National Gallery in Edinburgh, UK.

Depicted in the artwork is a scene featuring a close-knit assembly of ballet dancers. Degas illustrates the figures with an emphasis on movement and the play of light, showcasing the billowing tutus in mid-twirl against a backdrop of earthy tones and hints of red. The dancers’ poses are captured with a mixture of clarity and blurriness, reflecting the artist’s mastery in portraying the fleeting moments of motion characteristic of Impressionist art. The loose and expressive brushwork, combined with a hazy atmosphere, conveys the dynamic energy of the dancers, while simultaneously giving the piece an intimate and immediate quality that draws viewers into the moment.
