Two dancers yellow and pink (1898). Edgar Degas (French, 1834-1917). Pastel on paper. Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes, Buenos Aires. The dancers are resting, exhausted after their activity, seated, trying to alleviate their fatigue. One rubs her ankle while the others adjusts her companion’s costume almost through inertia. In these final works from the 1890s the colors are strong, the lines are thick and the spaces portrayed can seem unreal.
