Dancers in the Rehearsal Room with a Double Bass was painted by Edgar Degas. More than any other group of works in Degas’s oeuvre, the frieze-format ballet rehearsals constitute a series. This painting is probably the second in more than forty such works. It was preceded by The Dance Lesson of 1879 (formerly Mellon collection; now National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.), which shows a room with different details and a violin case instead of the contrabass.

Otherwise, the essential features that characterize the series are present: the long wall that recedes precipitously back into space, providing a foil for one, two, or three principal figures in front; the pocket of space where the room widens, with two tall French windows illuminating a group of dancers limbering up before a rehearsal or cooling off afterward; the chair; and the bench, which was to become the locus for many of Degas’s late images of dancers.
