White. "… it is tempting to write off Degas’s pictures of ballerinas as overly pretty and effeminate — flickering visions of beribboned nymphets in tutus pirouetting across the stage. But nothing could be further from the reality of his robust and vigorous studies of athletes sweating and straining their sinews. His ballerinas aren’t simpering, insipid creatures of fantasy, but flesh-and-blood young women whose “distorted” anatomies shocked early critics. … he wanted to fix the momentary, and imbue pieces of paper and canvas with the animation and vitality of the human figure in motion — a challenge analogous to the efforts of other Impressionists to transcribe ephemeral effects of atmosphere and light …" (Alistair Sooke, © Telegraph Media Group Limited 2013) Read more:
This is a game to keep art alive. Click "Like" and I will assign you an artist. It doesn't matter if you don't know his/her work. Search the Internet, choose the one you like the most and post it on FB with this text. Anne Wilkerson Allen assigned me: Mary Stevenson Cassatt (/kəˈsæt/; May 22, 1844 – June 14, 1926) was an American painter and printmaker. She lived much of her adult life in France, where she first befriended Edgar Degas and later exhibited among the Impressionists. Cassatt often created images of the social and private lives of women, with particular emphasis on the intimate bonds between mothers and children. She was described by Gustave Geffroy in 1894 as one of "les trois grandes dames" of Impressionism alongside Marie Bracquemond and Berthe Morisot. I remember studying Mary Cassatt, but I don't recall seeing this particular painting and I really like it! Thanks, Anne!
Familiar faces in new places at the Norton Simon Museum - Edgar Degas'...
It suddenly started pouring rain in New Orleans yesterday. I tried to wait it out but the rain kept falling. I was trying to get to the art museum to see Edgar Degas's painting of his pregnant sister-in-law. She had 6 children and 4 died, she was pregnant and going blind. Her husband (Degas's brother) was having an affair with the neighbor. Her portrait is in the New Orleans Art Museum. My eyes stung with rain, I could barely see, and I was getting soaked to my socks but I kept at it, scootering in the bike lane on the street (sidewalks are bumpy). Then a white Lexus blocked my path so I veered onto the sidewalk. The driver rolled down her window, "How far you goin' Honey?" she asked. I laughed and told her I didn't want to get her car wet! (Leather seats, nice car.) Guess who she was? The mom of Obama's soon-to-be-sworn-in attorney general (Kenneth Polite) and a retired police officer. I confessed it was the anniversary of my mom's death and that I was feeling overwhelmed with sadness. "It was meant to b ...

For months, Van Gogh worked at Cormon's studio where he frequented the circle of the British-Australian artist John Peter Russell, and met fellow students like Émile Bernard, Louis Anquetin, and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec – who painted a portrait of Van Gogh with pastel. The group congregated at Julien "Père" Tanguy's paint store; at that time the only place where Paul Cézanne's paintings were displayed. He had easy access to Impressionist works in Paris at the time. In 1886, two large vanguard exhibitions were staged; shows where Neo-Impressionism was first exhibited and seen, with works by Georges Seurat and Paul Signac becoming the talk of the town. Though Theo kept a stock of Impressionist paintings in his gallery on Boulevard Montmarte – by artists including Claude Monet, Alfred Sisley, Edgar Degas and Camille Pissarro – Van Gogh seemingly had problems acknowledging developments in how artists view and paint their subject matter.

"Former President George W. Bush appears to be influenced by such painters as Edgar Degas and Édouard Manet." -
I had a wonderful time this afternoon at The Phillips Collection in DC listening to Rachel Barton Pine play Paganini while surrounded by priceless works of art. Although I know very little of painting, even a dolt like myself could appreciate being amongst works by Gustave Courbet, Pierre Bonnard, Georges Braque, Jacques Villon, Paul Cézanne, Honoré Daumier, Edgar Degas, Vincent Van Gogh, Paul Klee, Henri Matisse, Claude Monet, El Greco, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, and Pablo Picasso. Surrounded by such timeless works, listening to timeless music, certainly gives one a fuller appreciation of what art means to civilization. It also reminds us that we are just passing thru in this life, but great art stands the test of time.

On the Road Again The Hill-Stead Museum in West Hartford is home to original paintings and sculptures by Claude Monet, Mary Cassatt, Edgar Degas and more, which Alfred Pope collected on his travels throughout the world. Although its collections rival other museums in the United States, this is no ordinary museum. This warm country home, whose list of guests includes President Theodore Roosevelt, is virtually just around the corner from the Lodge. The architect, daughter Theodate, was way ahead of her time -- the home is unique and very inviting. It felt as though Theodate was expecting us, although it has been nearly 70 years since she was here. What a beautiful outing celebrating a piece of Connecticut history!
Richard Estes (born May 14, 1932, Kewanee, Illinois) is an American artist, best known for his photorealist paintings. The paintings generally consist of reflective, clean, and inanimate city and geometric landscapes. He is regarded as one of the founders of the international photo-realist movement of the late 1960s, with such painters as Ralph Goings, Chuck Close, and Duane Hanson. Author Graham Thompson wrote, "One demonstration of the way photography became assimilated into the art world is the success of photorealist painting in the late 1960s and early 1970s. It is also called super-realism or hyper-realism and painters like Richard Estes, Denis Peterson, Audrey Flack, and Chuck Close often worked from photographic stills to create paintings that appeared to be photographs."At an early age, Estes moved to Chicago with his family, where he studied fine arts at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago (1952–56). He frequently studied the works of realist painters such as Edgar Degas, Edward Hopper, ...

International Edition November 15, 2012 Last Updated: 4:56:AM EST SHOWS THAT MATTER: The French Lay Claim to Edward Hopper's Noir Americana by Juliette Soulez, ARTINFO France Published: October 23, 2012 WHAT: “Edward Hopper” WHEN: October 10 – January 28, 2013 WHERE: Grand Palais, Paris WHY THIS SHOW MATTERS: The iconic American artist is seen through a French lens in this Paris show, which has been organized by Pompidou Center assistant director Didier Ottinger. Hopper spent almost a year in Paris in 1906, and returned there in 1909 and 1910. In addition to some of his greatest works — the exhibition features reowned pieces such as “Nighthawks” and “Chop Suey” — the exhibition also includes paintings by Edgar Degas and Félix Vallotton that were created during the American’s time in Paris and likely impacted his practice. Though Hopper broke with European influence upon returning to the U.S., it left a mark in his subsequent ouevre. “Hotel Room” (1931) and even the much later “M ...

Edgar Degas captured motion ,beautifully ,reminds me of his Dancers in beautiful opulent settings of the times .
Music is an art. In the same way the french impressionist Edgar Degas' many paintings and sculptures capture the feelings and trends of a nationality or time, so does music. It shouldn't be judged on how good or bad it is, but on what the artist is trying to say, and why they are saying it. Just because a song doesn't fit the kind of music you listen to, doesn't mean you cant appreciate the beauty in it.
"A painting requires a little mystery, some vagueness, some fantasy. When you always make your meaning perfectly plain you end up boring people." ::: Edgar Degas :::
FIFTEEN FUN "ARTY FACTS" 1. Impressionist painter Vincent Van Gogh, while admired by millions (possibly billions) since his death, only sold one painting during his lifetime; Red Vineyard at Arles. 2. Artist Edgar Degas was so fascinated with ballet dancers that he became obsessed with representing them in his art. It is estimated Degas made approximately 1500 paintings, pastels, prints and drawings of dancers. 3. In 1962 Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa was valued at $100 million. Who knows what it would be worth today? 4. Leonardo da Vinci spent 12 years painting the Mona Lisa's lips. 5. Roman statues were made with detachable heads, so that one head could be removed and replaced by another. 6. English artist Andy Brown, created a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II of Britain by stitching together 1,000 used tea bags. 7. On 20th November 1929 Spanish surrealist artist Salvador Dali held his first one-man show in Paris, France 8. Picasso could draw before he could walk, and his first word was the Spanish word f ...

I like the style of such painting too! I was in Toulouse, France, in 1994, when I attended a technical conference, FLUCOME '94.
Degas was my mentor's mentor's mentor ... along with Cezanne and Matisse [1900-1909].
A Great Artist that I was lucky enough to learn about in Art History!
This painting looks very similar to ours Albright-Knox Art Gallery of a woman raising her dress for a VD check. Some things never change. Toulouse was a man in his own time and sadly, ahead of his time.

Giovanni Boldini (December 31, 1842 - July 11, 1931) was an Italian genre and portrait painter, belonging to the Parisian school. According to a 1933 article in Time magazine, he was known as the "Master of Swish" because of his flowing style of painting. Boldini was born in Ferrara, the son of a painter of religious subjects, and went to Florence in 1862 to study painting, meeting there the realist painters known as the Macchiaioli. Their influence is seen in Boldini's landscapes which show his spontaneous response to nature, although it is for his portraits that he became best known. He attained great success in London as a portraitist. From 1872 Boldini lived in Paris, where he became a friend of Edgar Degas. He also became the most fashionable portrait painter in Paris in the late 19th century, with a dashing style of painting which shows some Impressionist influence but which most closely resembles the work of his contemporaries John Singer Sargent and Paul Helleu. He was nominated commissioner of th ...

MOVIE REVIEW: "Midnight In Paris" (2011) This film is about a man name Gil who is getting married. He and his fiancee have a little time before the wedding, so they decide to go on a vaction to Paris with the girl's parents. Every night at midnight, a cab comes to a specific corner to pick Gil up. Gil (Owen Wilson) is agog to find that it's actually history's greatest painters and writers from 1920s Paris. He had actually time traveled and realizes he loves it there better than the real world. He falls in love with Pablo Picasso's girlfriend Adrianna. In the real world, his fiancee and her parents are really mean and really critical. In the fantasy world, he meets: Pablo Picaso, T.S. Eliot, Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Zelda Fitzgerald, Gerturde Stein, Luis Bunel, Salvador Dali, Henri Matisse, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Edgar Degas and Man name a few. It's a brilliant film that had been casted perfectly. It astounishes me of well it was casted: a mix of French actors with American actors. ...
