"Woman in the Bath" by Edgar Degas
This is a beautiful painting. I love the colours, the lighting, and the impressionistic technique, but I’m not sure about the subject. Degas did tons of paintings of women bathing in private. To me this is not the same as a group of frolicking women in a river. To me there is something creepy about getting a model to take a bath. Speaking of which. I must get to work on my bathing piece – “Man in the Bath”.
Pass the soap.
