This is an oil on canvas done by Edgar Degas in 1874 called The Dance Class. I tried to search for a famous chalk pastel drawing but instead I got a painting done by one of the most famous chalk pastel artists, Edgar Degas. There's also a small cello in the background in the painting to so in a way it incorporates two things that we are doing in class right now. But otherwise I chose it because it seems so busy and detailed and it amazes me how artists are able to execute their work (since I'm having difficulty with just the cello details)
