6. EDGAR DEGAS
Café Concert (The Spectators) (1876-77)
Degas depicts the scene of a crowded concert in brightly colored pastels. The complicated tableau includes details like the man in the center about to spill his beer and a singer visibly warm from the stage lighting.
McCULLAGH SAYS: “This piece just came in this summer and it’s a really fine example of Degas’s use of color.”
