“Whereas previously in his “dance classes” Degas focused on isolated figures and large spaces, here he groups together four figures making adjustments to their hair and costumes, almost forming one single creature with several heads, several arms and several feet. The shapes of the blue tutus provides the transition from one body to another.”Via: books0977
