“Art is not what you see, but what you make others see.” Edgar Degas
If you love art and you love dance…
Edgar Degas (19 July 1834 – 27 September 1917) – a French artist famous for his work in painting, sculpture, printmaking and drawing. He is regarded as one of the founders of Impressionism although he rejected the term, and preferred to be called a realist. He is especially identified with the subject of the dance, and over half his works depict dancers. These exceptional paintings display his mastery in the depiction of movement (as do his racecourse subjects and female nudes). His portraits are considered to be among the finest in the history of art. I personally love the ones chosen for this post.
