Note: The Dix Danseuses [Ten Dancers] suite by Matisse is considered one of the finest collections of this subject matter by any of the Impressionist artists.

The subject of ballet attracted Matisse like many of the Impressionists. The preface for this suite of ten lithographs was written by the respected art critic Waldemar George [Waldemar Jarocinski], who was a leading supporter of the Modernist movement and École de Paris.
