It is possible that his diminished vision resulted in the heavy contours that surround the dancers and give only the barest suggestion of their facial features. Rather than attempting great detail, he concentrated on mapping out the unpredictable effects of theatrical lighting on the forms of the figures.

Artist Edgar Degas admired Cassatt’s art and encouraged her to join the circle of painters that included Pierre Renoir and Claude Monet, the group that became known as the Impressionists. She first exhibited with them in 1879, when she was 35, and continued to be associated with them for the rest of her life. Cassatt was the only American woman in the group. While Cassatt’s subjects were typically women and children, she herself lived an atypical life for a woman in that period. Cassatt was a strong supporter of women’s suffrage; this painting and others were exhibited in a 1915 exhibition at Knoedler’s that was organized by Cassatt’s good friend and staunch supporter, suffragist and art connoisseur Louisine Havemeyer.
