This beautiful oil painting of a ballet dancer was done by American artist Louis Kronberg (1872-1965). Kronberg was born in Boston and studied at the Arts Student League in New York and at the Museum of Fine Arts School, where he was influenced by Edmund Tarbell and Frank Benson. At the Museum School, Kronberg won a Longfellow Traveling Scholarship, which gave him opportunity to continue his studies at the Academie Julian in Paris from 1894 to 1896. There, he studied under Benjamin Constant, Jean Paul Laurens, and also took private lessons with Raphael Collin. While in Paris, Kronberg saw and greatly admired Edouard Degas’ paintings of ballet dancers, a theme he was to explore throughout his career.
