Enjoy Reading p. 102 Edgar Degas, My Favorite Artist In my art class, the teacher asked us to write a report on our favorite painters. I picked Edgar Degas. I am interested in ballet, so I like Degas paintings of young dancers. Do you want to know more about him? Here is the report I wrote. 20305 Lee Jisu Degas' Early and Later Paintings Many painters in Degas' time thought that they could be better painters by copying famous paintings. Degas was one of them. He spent a lot of time in museums in his early days as a painter. He especially liked to go to the Louvre Museum and copy famous paintings there. One day, Degas met Manet while he was copying a painting at the Louvre Museum. Manet looked at Degas' painting. He then told him to stop copying paintings and paint the everyday lives of people whom he saw around him. Degas followed Manet s advice, so he took his sketchbook everywhere. Soon, Degas paintings began to change. Before, he painted people just standing still. In later paintings, he painted people doing everyday things. In one painting, a woman is ironing. In another painting, a woman is making hats. Ask and Answer 1. Why did Degas go to the Louvre Museum? 2. What did Manet tell Degas? 3. How are Degas later paintings different from his earlier paintings?

Difference Between Degas and Other Painters in His Day There was one big difference between Degas and other famous painters in his day such as Monet and Manet. These painters mostly painted outside in the sunlight. They painted mountains, trees, and flowers. Unlike other painters, Degas liked to paint in his studio. Sometimes he painted in his studio based on the sketches he drew outside. Sometimes he used models in he studio. Dancers Degas Favorite Subject

Today, Degas is most famous for his paintings of young dancers. Degas liked to paint dancers because he wanted to show movement in his paintings. My favorite painting is The Dancer on Stage. The girl in the picture is really beautiful. Ask and Answer 1. How was Degas different from other painters in his day? 2. What kind of paintings is Degas most famous for?
