Limbering up before rehearsal, ballerinas stretch at the bar in this expertly rendered work that retains the edge of realism. Though grouped with the Impressionists because he also favored dazzling colors and the effects of light, Degas never painted en plein air, but favored a technique that demanded the planning and execution modeled by the old masters. The authentic stretched canvas replica painting captures the original work's texture, depth of color, and even its bold brushstrokes, which are applied by hand exclusively for Design Toscano. The imported, delicately carved hardwood frame boasts a delicate leaf motif with fine feathered detailing finished in antique gold tones.
