Degas Ballet Dancers Scarf

Item# 10063448


Degas Ballet Dancers Scarf

Made in Vienna of pure silk with hand–rolled hems, this colorful scarf depicts a dramatic, silkscreened image of ballet dancers by French Impressionist, Edgar Degas (1834 – 1917).

Considered to be the supreme painter of the ballet, he created hundreds of paintings, prints, drawings and sculptures, portraying 19th-century dancers.

This luxurious scarf features a loosely rendered painting of ballet dancers outfitted in their costumes, striking different poses against a brilliant orange background.

It celebrates the genius of creativity like that found in all disciplines of art — including the world of dance, music, theater, as well as costume and set design, which all work together to create a magnificent experience like that seen at the American Ballet Theatre.

Ballet

In classic or contemporary ballet, dancing may tell a story, express a mood, or simply reflect the music in movement. Ballet as part of staged performances originated in the Italian Renaissance courts of the 15th and 16th centuries and from there spread to France. The creation of classical ballet as we know it today occurred during the reign of the art-loving French king Louis XIV in the mid-17th century. During the Romantic era, ballet technique evolved to express new ideas, most notably with women dancing en point, or on their toes, allowing them to appear weightless and otherworldly.
 
Among the choreographers who helped bring ballet into the modern age by exploring new visual and dramatic styles are George Balanchine, Antony Tudor and—bridging the worlds of classical dance and Broadway—Agnes de Mille and Jerome Robbins.
