Edgar Degas considered himself as a realist but he worked in the time period of Impressionism. His work displays great technical skills in all the medium he used such as oil, chalk, pastel, pencil, etching, and sculpture. In his paintings, Degas captured unique angles and details of the everyday humanity that were new to the art world in the time of Impressionism. He also liked to paint dancers abilities and body movements, proving the strength and determination needed to be a ballerina. People call me the painter of dancing girls,” Degas said, It has never occurred to them that my chief interest in dancers lies in rendering movement and painting pretty clothes. Our book boxes with dancers in blue tutus illustrate in a magnificent manner Degas’ quote.
