“Manet and Degas were two artists equally bound up in the development of impressionism and reluctant to enjoy its embrace. Both artists – as friends and rivals – used the modernity of Paris for their subject matter and presented radically new ways of seeing. Their depictions of dancers, prostitutes, and the theater of the City of Light helped to change what art could be.”—Dr. James Hicks, #SothebysInstitute Consultant Lecturer. Join Hicks in January for a deep dive into how these and 6 other artistic contemporaries influenced the art of their time ➡️ #linkinbio . 🎨: #Manet’s The Luncheon on the Grass (1862) and #Degas’ Two Ballet Dancers (1879)
SKI DANCERS💃💃💃 One must do the same thing over and over again ten times, a hundred times. In ski dancing art nothing must resemble an accident, not even a movement. If Degas would live during our times I'm sure he'd prefer to paint ski dancers and their grace movements rather than ballerinas.
