Edgar Degas

Posted: April 21, 2010 in Certificate of Design & Visual Arts, Painting, Research


Degas style interests and intrigues me – his work Dancer (Danseuse) is a beautiful example of an impressionist at work. It shows bold strokes and use of colour, and is not a direct copy of the model. I ask the question-is this in the same format as the works by Chuck Close and Ellen Carey – and I say yes! Degas’s interest is in the process & technique of the painting which is also true of Close and Carey.
