Description

Kendall looking at pictures by Degas, not the usual Impressionist outdoor scenes, but L’Absinthe / In a Café (1876) sketches of jockeys, ballet dancers. Portrait of Pagans with Degas’s Father (c.1869). Four Self-Portraits at different ages. Kendall looking at book on Ingres; paintings by him. Ingres’s view was that line and form was much more important than colour. Another self-portrait (etching) by Degas who was much influenced by Ingres to "draw lines". Students at work on their drawings. Life drawings by Degas. Students working. Line in art represented organisation; colour stood for more sensuous aspects. Detail from Self Portrait with Evariste de Valernes (1816-96) (1865). The Millinery Shop (c.1884) with colour employed much more boldly. Another painting with Degas’s words over explaining how he recalled different colours.
