LOOKING

Last time I talked about how Art is defined and the importance of contribution. Let’s look at these two drawings, studies by Degas for a painting.

Is this a feeling of repose?

Is this a dancers movement or a longing outreach to a lover?

The Painting is titled “Scene de Guerre au Moyen Age (Scene of War in the Middle Ages)” click image to see larger

So this one is titled “Interieur” it is an illustration of a passage from “Therese Raquin” by Emile Zola. What does it say to you??

And now being told it is also (mis)titled “Le Viol (The Rape)” what does it say??

It is in the contribution that there is art.
