      Edgar Degas created many sketches and pastels of Ukrainian dancers in Paris, where they were a popular attraction in cabarets and theaters.

      Despite the uniqueness of Ukrainian culture, the dancers were generically called “Russian dancers,” because the majority of Ukraine was still part of the Russian Empire at the time.

      Degas’s Russian Dancers, on view through October 23

      Russian Dancers, 1899, Edgar Degas. Pastel and brush on tracing paper, 22 7/16 × 29 ½ in. Courtesy of a private collection
