Inspiration: Ballet / Edgar Degas

When I was little girl, I took ballet classes, and I regret every day not continuing them. I admire the strength and beauty that ballet dancers have so much, and the grandeur, costumes and hard work behind the ballet inspires me. Another addition to my minor ballet obsession is the work of impressionist painter Edgar Degas. I believe he successfully captured the fantasy and mystery, the dreamlike qualities, of the ballet through his flowing, colorful works of art. Here are some photos I've collected to share with you, mostly from Garance Doré (who has two lovely blog posts about the New York Ballet, something that I've always dreamed about going to see) and, of course, Edgar Degas.
