Ahead of Sotheby’s upcoming Art Impressionniste et Moderne Evening Sale (25 March 2021 Paris) discover how his painting ‘Danseuse au Tutu Vert’ beautifully illustrates a dancer’s private moment backstage. Find out about the artist’s intense use of colour and how his chosen medium of pastel has truly stood the test of time. Click here to watch more Sotheby’s videos.
