About Dancer with a Bouquet of Flowers
More than half of Edgar Degas' works depict dancers. In fact, approximately 1,500 paintings, pastels, prints and drawings of dancers or ballerinas, most of which depict dancers backstage or in rehearsal, emphasizing their status as professionals doing a job.

From 1870Degas increasingly painted ballet subjects, partly because they sold well and provided him with needed income after his brother's debts had left the family bankrupt.

About Edgar Degas
Edgar Degas (born July 19, 1834, Paris, France—died September 27, 1917, Paris) was a French painter, sculptor, and printmaker who was prominent in the Impressionist group and widely celebrated for his images of Parisian life. Degas’s principal subject was the human—especially the female—figure, which he explored in works ranging from the somber portraits of his early years to the studies of laundresses, cabaret singers, milliners, and prostitutes of his Impressionist period. Ballet dancers and women at their toilette would preoccupy him throughout his career.
