The Ballet Class Cross Stitch Pattern
Edgar Degas

This beautiful fine-art cross stitch design was developed from a painting done by Edgar Degas between 1871 and 1874 which he named The Ballet Class (also known as La Classe de Danse). From the 1870s until his death, Degas’s favorite subjects for his paintings were the ballerinas in various postures and gestures. He enjoyed watching the ballerinas perfecting their craft in rehearsals more than the stage performances. Looking diagonally across the studio, you can see the vanishing perspective of the floorboards which were moistened to prevent slipping; the floor being the dancer’s primary work tool. Paul Valéry wrote: "Degas is one of the very few painters who gave the ground its true importance. He has some admirable floors." This painting resides at the Musée d'Orsay in Paris, France.
