& here: Edgar Degas
I didn’t know Degas saw or painted the majesty and sensitivity of horses. Thank you for bringing this forward!
It was a surprise to me too! Thank you for your kind words and visit. 🙏🏻😌
I wouldn’t have guessed that the first painting is by Degas.
Me neither! 😉
The gift of art … precious!
Love to you and Hera!
Precious indeed!!!! xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo
I remember him and his fabulous paintings, Marina. I’m drawn to the horses. Animals and landscapes are my favorites. Thanks for sharing again, dear friend. ❤️❤️❤️
So glad you enjoyed this little reminder of his birthday, my dear friend.
Many hugs your way!
Hooray … an artist that I know! 🙂 Very timely because next Monday I will be visiting an immersive experience featuring Monet and other Impressionists including Degas. Now I wonder if Horses in a Meadow will be part of it. Yamas!
Maybe, as it is at the NGA in Washington! Maybe you’ll share your experience?!!!!!
Yamas, my friend!
Another wonderful tribute Marina. Horses in a Meadow brings back memories of visits to my grandparents. When I think of Degas, I envision his ballet paintings. This painting gives us another side of his artistic impression.
I know, but he’s done so many other themes beautifully. As I was saying to Tim, there’s a tenderness in this image which could also contribute to your fond memories.
This painting is so beautiful. Why, oh why, do painters all seem so forlorn in their self-portraits? 🙂
I agree! On the forlorn bit… maybe it’s not exactly forlorn but withdrawn while detaching themselves from their reflection.
Possibly… They do seem such a sorry lot, though!
okay, there’s a humorous angle: maybe the model stood them up! 🤣
Buahahaha! Why not? 😉
Spectacular art, I love the works of Degas. It’s interesting that his art’s monetary value is now surpassed by Kahlo. Thank you for sharing this beautiful painting ( I didn’t know he was a French artist!) ❤️
I love his work too. The art market works in ‘mysterious’ ways! Eric Wayne at https://artofericwayne.com/2022/06/30/dismantling-the-dominant-art-narrative-2/ has [other than his brilliant work] excellent and enlightening articles about art and art market.
I will definitely check his site out! xoxoxoxo
I know you’ll enjoy the visit!
👌👌👌🖌️🎨🖼️ classic. Have You a wonderful day dear Marina ☀️🌻🤗
You too, my friend! 🙏🌷🌟
I love Degas. The horses are wonderful.
There’s a tenderness in this scene I love. They are wonderful indeed.
