Before the Performance by Edgar Degas cotton washbag
Practical and stylish cotton washbag features the popular artwork Before the Performance by Edgar Degas, part of the National Galleries of Scotland collection printed on both sides. Made in the United Kingdom, this is an exclusive design for the National Galleries of Scotland.
Made from 100% GOTS certified organic cotton, with a waterproof lining and pulled zip.
A group of dancers are on stage preparing themselves for the impending performance: they practise their positions and one ballerina stoops to tie her shoe.
The dancers are not individuals, but faceless memories of a scene he had once observed. The vivid colours are vibrant and unrealistic, evoking the surreal effects produced by the gas lights of the theatre.
