Edgar Degas favored subjects in movement as though caught by a candid camera. Degas's style of composition was influenced by photography and by Japanese prints. Although Degas paintings of ballet dancers appear casual and unstudied, the compositions, with their oblique views and asymmetrical balance, were in fact carefully calculated. One such painting - The Pink Dancers, was carefully re - created by our painter, conveying the exact and unique Degas' painting techique - dry brush over texture, bold and carefull lines, one of a kind color tonality.
