Not a pretty picture doesn't make it into the picture

Back to the 'known/unknown' thought I mentioned a couple of posts ago: for some time now I've been thinking about how does it happen that certain images by acclaimed masters go 'invisible', or are hardly ever seen. It is not a difficult question to answer by any means, but the 'left out' images are extremely interesting to see once you find them.
Not all of them have a reason for such an oblivion given already in the title, like in these 2 paintings by Degas, one of which is called "Sulking" and the other "Rape".

Pastel-colo(u)red ballerinas make such a pretty picture. Who'd want to spoil that???
