About Degas - Mug - The Dance Lesson (1879)
This Degas mug is inspired by the artist's painting: 'The Dance Lesson (1879)', from the National Gallery of Art. Degas's best-known works are those inspired by the ballet. For an artist committed to the depiction of modern life, the theater in all of its forms—the ballet, the opera, even the more raucous café-concerts—held a special appeal. What intrigued him the most, however, was not the formal, polished performance, but rather the behind-the-scenes, casual, candid moments of dancers rehearsing or resting.
