Writing about web page http://www.artrenewal.org/images/artists/D/Degas_edgar/large/The_Rape_CGF.jpgI think that when most people think of Degas they just think of Ballerinas, Dancers and Cafe-Concerts. However despite coming from a well off conservative background he still painted many interesting images of Paris's 'darker' side, for example the images of prostitutes, the ironers and washer women, the absinthe drinker and the one linked above.
He's someone I would like to know more about.
