Master. Laurent Pichereau Lpartisti
The important thing is not the destination but the journey… This work highlights the master, the teacher who puts his students on the path. Dance is a demanding art, it takes rigor and discipline to excel. Inspired by the painting “the dance class” by Edgar degas, I wanted to respect the original work as much as possible, because I wanted to draw the eye to the teacher's stick which here symbolizes authority, knowledge and'experience.
Edgar degas traveled to operas for a long time and set up his easel to paint scenes of dancers in training.
My painting respects the codes of perspective and movement desired by the original artist but I wanted to give more depth and contrast made possible by the technique used of white and gray drawing on a black background. The touch of red allows you to zoom in on an element and gives this work a contemporary character.
I find that this painting transcends time and echoes today the importance of the transmission of knowledge. We live in an era dominated by everything digital, let's not forget that there are people whose experiences of the past can serve the present.
Possibility of making high quality prints on dibond, these prints will be numbered, signed and authenticated by the artist. Several sizes available

Magnifique votre œuvre dont les robes blanches des danseuses éclairent la toile ainsi que le bâton rouge qui reflète votre tableau. Bravo, c'est superbe votre réalisation.
