An impressionist print by famous artist Edgar Degas. Two little girls practice their plea's on the barre in soft muted pastel tutus. The watering can to the left was a staple in dance classes. Water was sprinkled on top of the floor to keep dust from rising as the ballerinas danced. However, Degas also used the watering can as a form of irony. The watering can is in the shape of the dancers.
