Degas ballerina sketch- I just wonder what these three young ballerinas are thinking about.  I love the bits of white charcoal to make the drawing 'pop'. Figure Drawing, Art, Art Drawings, Drawing Hands, Degas Drawings, Art Graphique, Sketch, Male Sketch, Ballet Drawings

One of Degas' principal concerns as a draftsman was analyzing the movements and gestures of the female body. The three studies on this sheet depict the teenage dancer Marie van Goethem and were produced in preparation for the celebrated wax sculpture Little Dancer, Fourteen Years Old. The sculpture was briefly exhibited at the 1881 Salon, where the artist's inclusion of a wig and a fabric bodice and skirt caused a sensation. Degas made numerous studies of Marie between 1878 and 1880.
