Degas captures three ballerinas backstage during a performance. One rubs her foot while the others crowd around; bright stage lighting falls on their bare arms and shoulders. The three overlapping bodies and their gauzy tutus fill the space of the composition, merging into a field of electric yellow. Degas had a subscription to the Paris ballet, which allowed him behind-the-scenes access. He studied dancers intently and revealed the art form as grueling physical labor.
