About the Painting
Edgar Degas specialised in scenes of contemporary life, including dancers, entertainers and women at their toilette. His mastery of technique was superb, and he experimented with various media including pastel.
In an attempt to catch the action of the moment, Degas's ballet dancers and female nudes are in poses that make no attempt to conceal the subjects' physical exertions. The ballet dancer pictured in Waiting is in a moment of rest as she waits. Her stage mother sits beside her, aware of her daughter's limited prospects.
