Does anyone like his work?
Me and my house mate are opposed on this and have been deabting it for a while.
I really dislike his stuff – I just think it's idealized, sentimental and really gets on my nerves becuase it's so smooth and just classic postcard/poster type stuff.

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.

Writing about web page http://www.ibiblio.org/wm/paint/auth/caillebotte/raboteurs/scrapers.jpgi think this is a brilliant painting – you can feel the varnish coming off the wood
his work is very very interesting, well worth looking at
not exactly in line with what the French Academys were looking for
