An Uncle and A Cousin

Henri Degas and His Niece Lucie Degas / Edgar Degas / Oil on canvas / 1876

Unfortunately the subtleties of this piece aren’t obvious on a screen, but each surface in the picture has its own texture. Also, a reminder that you can see this and every other painting in the Art Institute for free if you are an Illinois resident on Thursday evenings. Or you can tag along with me since, thanks to my parents, I have a membership.
