Edgar Degas 1834–1917, The Dance Class, 1874.

  • 100% Silk

A beautiful result when printed onto silk, this work and its variant in the Musée d'Orsay, Paris, represent the most ambitious paintings Degas devoted to the theme of dance. Twenty-four women, ballerinas and their mothers, are shown waiting while a dancer executes an "attitude" for her examination. A famous ballet master, Jules Perrot, is conducting the class. Although it had recently burned to the ground, the scene is set in a rehearsal room in the old Paris Opéra.

Usage: Generally, we find tailors prefer to work with two panels of a single painting per jacket in order to line up the image along the back seam. For full details on how best to use our linings, click here: Linings FAQ.
