|Edgar Degas, Three dancers 1889|
But one of the things I loved most was this drawing by Edgar Degas. It shows his beloved dancers, but this is not a painting, but a sketch, with pastels on green paper. Degas was an excellent drawer, I read somwhere that he was the only modern artist who could draw like Rembrandt and Titiaan.
I loved this sketch from the first moment I saw it. It is very simple, but you can still imagine the dancers getting ready for a perfomance or a lesson, checking their clothes and warming up the shoes so they will be ready in a moment.
A quick sketch like this shows what a great artist Edgar Degas was.
