Other preparatory studies for this picture are today in the Morgan Library and the Norton Simon Museum. The Harvard painting reveals the light source all three drawings share to have been a row of high windows looking onto a leafy courtyard from the main rehearsal room at the old Paris opera house in the rue Le Peletier.
This clearly identifiable location suggests that the Harvard picture and, hence, the proposed sheet can probably be dated to no later than ; the old opera house burned to the ground in October of that year. Degas, however, kept this drawing in his studio, recycling its figures again and again.
