Dancers in Pink (c.1886). Edgar Degas (French, 1834-1917). Pastel on paper, mounted on cardboard. The Norton Simon Museum. This picture is a pure pastel, whose range of textures—from gleaming silk to airy tulle to powdery, gas-lit flesh—Degas seems to have achieved without wetting or mixing media. Two corps de ballet dancers, peculiarly anonymous in their matching costumes and poses, turn “upstage,” away from an imaginary audience beyond the picture plane.
