EXCERPT:
"Mlle. Fiocre in the Ballet La Source," 1867-1868, oil on canvas, was the big break in painting which Degas needed. It enabled him to leave history painting and pursue his ballet subjects instead.

The painting is not Impressionist. That was still to come. It is based on the ballet that opened the Palais Garnier in Paris in 1866. It was lavishly produced and with real horses. Paris’s hottest dancer, Eugénie Fiocre, played the role of the Georgian queen.

The highlight of the painting was the pool of water. It was achieved through a mistake. Degas neglected to add the stage lighting effects to it. He noticed this on his way out the door to deliver the painting to the 1868 Paris Salon.

He tried to fix his mistake but, when he varnished it, it was still wet. Thus, when he wiped at the varnish to fix his mistake, pigment was also removed. That was how the luminous sheet of water was created. He was stuck with it. He turned the onstage pool into a shining mirror that covered almost half the painting. It became the painting’s most popular feature.
