Degas excelled in depicting dancers in performance, rehearsal, waiting in the wings or, as here, at moments of ease.

Degas often re-worked his designs and earlier pastels incorporate the same arrangement of figures.This is a canvas print on 240 GSM 100 % cotton canvas and is dispatched as gallery wrap - i.e. canvas is wrapped on a wooden frame making it absolutely ready to hang on the walls.
