Blue Dancer, 1912. The dance was one of Gino Severini's favourite themes, and was emotively tied to the café life in Paris. Severini painted the Blue dancer together with The White Dancer in the second quarter of 1912. Also 1912 was the year Severini came to terms with the Cubism of his friends Pablo Picasso and Braque, using it specifically as a means of expressing movements, which was his chief concern at the time.
