Study for a Spanish Dancer by John Singer Sargent gives us a more individualized view of the art of dance. The subject is a singular woman, enjoying the movement to the music, with only the viewer as the audience.

Let this private dancer contribute to your own growth in a new art by watching her from the comfort of your home.
The Cellist by Amedeo Modigliani displays a unique level of emotion, intimacy, and passion. As we watch the man play his instrument, we can see the intensity in his expression and closed eyes. The artist’s use of highlights and shading add depth and movement to the portrait. Try to see if you might be able to hear the music he plays if you watch it closely.
