Learn About Degas

Art Renaissance Lectures Present : Edgar Degas. $5. fee (snacks) provided. This is not hosted by Meetup, but you can go and meet the other friendly artists there, or bring a friend with you.

An exciting slide show by Michel Sarda and the Art Renaissance Foundation on Edgar Degas (1834 - 1917)."Often presented as an Impressionist, which he wasn't, Degas illustrates a convergence of influences at the end of the art-fertile 19th century.

Himself an oddity among his peers (Monet, Renoir, Van Gogh) who were actively reinventing paintings, Degas was wealthy, allergic to outdoors and respectful of traditions. In his own visual language, he expressed the elegant, intimate and graceful vision of his world: horse races, dancers, ladies in private settings..."

$5 contribution to refreshments and snacks.

    Tom and Cynthia, we would have said Hi, but I don' t know what you look like. Anyway, we enjoyed the talk on Degas. I had not been to Shemer before. We will definitely go again - only earlier to get a good seat : )
