1. Spanish Dancer (1879-82). John Singer Sargent (American, 1856-1925). Oil on canvas. A preparatory study for the main figure in El Jaleo.

    Sargent dramatized the contrast between rich blacks and the shining white skirt of the dancer, caught in the strong footlights and painted briskly so as to suggest movement. The dancer, leaning asymmetrically, is placed to imply forward motion, from left to right across the canvas.
