2013/10/05 – Portraits and pictures of life: Degas & Renoir

In characteristic Impressionist style, Renoir suggested the details of a scene through freely brushed touches of colour, so that his figures softly fuse with one another and their surroundings. By contrast, Degas himself commented “no art was ever less spontaneous than mine”. In this session, we explored the legacies of these two very different masters, and the diversity of the impressionist movement.
