Recently i watched a very interesting documentary about Edgar Degas and her American friend Mary Cassatt , it's thanks to her that Degas and the impressionists were know in the usa :)
It's always fascinating to find out how different artists' work becomes known and/or popular.
This is a really wonderful one.
Fafa definitely spoiled me with the stamps.
An attractive mini sheet, perfect celebration of stamp day.
I was fortunate to receive the minisheet.
An elegant dancer!
Degas, and the portion selected by La Poste, capture it beautifully.
Beautiful stamp! The ballerina seems to be in her own world while dancing, while the man at first glance, looked like being caught on fire :P I enlarged the picture, and it still feels like that, except that I could spot two more people now :)Have to admit I know almost nothing about his life or his work, even though I've heard his name dozens of times.
A lot to see when you take a little time.
Indeed a lot to see. The fire-y curtain fascinates me, too :-)
