There is a mysterious concept behind the art of ballet. Ballet is often said to represent the beauty and artistic values of multiple generations. Shows displayed in the land of Paris, depicted a sense of wealth but later evolving into the story telling of several movements. In the year 1877, painter Edgar Degas combined his rebellious views with the traditional techniques in order to create one of my favorite paintings; the Ballet at the Paris Opera. Through this combination, Degas was able to depict a sense of balance in his artwork. During Degas ruin on the Paris art scene, he captured ballet as a romantic sense and tone. Because of Degas’s unorthodox ways, his techniques appear to seem after the time of the post-romantic era. This famous painting allows room for inspiration. Primarily through Degas’s use of smudging, body positioning, and transparent color use “Ballet at the Paris Opera” conveys Degas’s realistic interpretation of dance as a legitimate artistic form of art.

However this white outburst does not really affect the image itself. It draws the attention of the viewer’s hesitantly but the eye is attracted primarily back to the majority; with the ballerinas being the central focus. Degas also show style of the place and himself by including the blurry smudged back ground. Because of his portrayal of human isolation and contemporary subject matters Degas is able to bring about the livelihood stylistic forms of the Paris.
The subject of Degas’s painting is the nine ballerinas centered at the stage, however the Paris audience might have been of some importance also. His painting is considered subjective and more critically boastful of all his art work. To some extent, the eye is drawn to the white dresses of these so valiant performers because it is a larger position of white in the lower right corner. However, the vivid cloud of somewhat white mist hovering under the subjects somewhat shallow the lower canvas of the painting. This...
