Ballerina. Herbert James Draper (British, 1863-1920). Draper is best known for his dramatic and romantic paintings of sweeping mythological and literary subjects. His work displays a keen sense of drama and color, with subjects or entire art works depicted in a singular, closely related color . Although almost reaching a point of being monochromatic, Draper’s color style is clearly defined and brings about a dream like feeling. Ballerina is a primary example of Draper’s color use.
