Impression, soleil levant...



"Mes femmes sont des gens simples... Je les montre sans coquetterie, à l'état de bêtes qui se nettoient." - Edgar Degas

The impressionism, colors, joy, capturing the moment, movement, movement as a crucial element of human perception and experience from unusual visual angles. I've been listening all day Yann Tiersen, a French composer whose music has always brought me peace of mind..I've been thinking a lot at my life..past present future..and I felt the need to look for my book of history of art to see my favourite paintings. I pretty like art (my teacher is great.maybe it's because of her that I'm so into it). Looking through the book I went into my all time favourite painting that is "La classe de dance" ( The dance class )


Musèe D'Orsay, Paris

This oil on canvas is breathtaking. The white of the dancer’s dresses has an almost luminescent quality and gives the painting so much depth and visual interest. When I first saw this painting, I was struck by the costume of the dancers that is so "fairy tale-ish" and so romantic at the same time. I love how Degas painted the tulle of the tutus out of pure white and how the free flowing of these tutus emphasises lightness and introduces us to the magical atmosphere of romantic ballets...
Uhmm I'm getting too sensitive and romantic..maybe I should stop listening to Tiersen..somebody stop me(ahah)
Anyway, as you noticed Degas is my favourite impressionist painter, even though he's not completely an impressionist. Here are other wonderful paintings of his !!!

The blurriness, the hazy light that
surrounds them, and especially their tutus is what makes these ballerinas so beautiful. The tutus are so light that they look like
butterflies’ wings..
Magical!

Dites moi ce que vous en pensez...
