Whether in small shops, restaurants or cafés, the French could find music and dance along with their food or drink. Paris buzzed, it was alive.
The French Opera House, the Palais Garnier was opulent, rich, gorgeous. Attendance there was an experience in splendor, and was an invitation to experience the many layers of art. Orchestra, Ballet, Opera, all the while surrounded by epic beauty.
Edgar Degas 's works cover all of life. From bathing, to dance, to race horses, to family life he painted scenes to record the beauty, and the moment. His work depicts the ballet with exquisite depth. And I leave you with his works to demonstrate it.
