As with Rembrandt 4-days ago, I do not think of Edgar Degas as one the artists that will make my top 10 though I sure have no problems with either his cleverly rendered paintings or his exquisite sculptures of dancers. I have seen quite a bit of his work in Paris and in New York — and I notice that I invariably will dally around, admiring his talent from different angles and different perspectives. Though most think of him in terms of ‘ballerinas’ he sure was adept at painting nudes — as you can see from the gallery above. He made it to the 20th century, dying in Paris, during WW I

He is not in my pantheon of favorite painters BUT I do respect and admire his work — as one must. He sure had talent and knew how to use it. 411 years ago. Wow. That is a long time and makes you think. So much water has flowed under the many bridges in Amsterdam.
