Relive the experience of coming face-to-face with some of the most well-loved masterworks at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. This miniature postcard of The Dance Class by Edgar Degas (French, 1834–1917) is complimented by a glazed finish that mimics a painterly texture. The elegant wooden frame allows your keepsake to be hung with ease. Each framed item has been hand-framed by Furst Brothers, one of America's most prolific framers for over one hundred years. Working with the Philadelphia Museum of Art, they have paired every item with a unique setting in a complimentary color, texture, and wood.
About the Painting:
In this everyday scene from backstage at the Paris Opéra, a ballet instructor observes two young dancers while a mother sits reading in the foreground. Degas spent a great deal of time in the corridors and rehearsal rooms of the Opéra, where he would have seen mothers like this one managing their young daughters' careers. Girls began official ballet classes at age seven or eight in hopes of becoming premiere dancers by their late teens.
