Arte - E pur si muove


Swaying Dancer (Dancer in Green) [1877-79]. Edgar Degas (French, 1834-1917). Pastel and gouache on paper. Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza.
The group of dancers is depicted in mid-performance, as viewed from an upper side box. Only one of the girls in green is shown full-length, captured as she executes a swift, complicated turn. Degas felt that the unfinished, transitory nature of reality could only be conveyed using a fragmented technique. Here, the fleeting nature of the movements is captured with rapid pastel strokes, applied with skill.
