After a long attempt, I managed to realize an idea last weekend: the animated version of the laundress from EDGAR DEGAS. Here is the description given on the Pinakotheken page:
” The Laundress
Edgar Degas treated the subject of the laundress here for the first time. By the end of the 1860s, he had his “Ingres period” behind him and was increasingly turning to realistically conceived contemporary subjects. By 1902 he had painted a whole series of pictures of ironwomen. While in the later versions the work process as such, i.e. the moment of action, predominates, in this early version Degas’ interest is more in the person; she pauses in her work and looks at the viewer: the work picture has more the character of a portrait. The date of around 1869 is derived from a pastel with the same motif in the Musée d’Orsay, which the collector Manzi Joyant, a friend of Degas, published with this date. It is supported by the “69” dated portrait of Emma Dobigny, who – apparently at the same age of 16 to 17 – posed for the “Büglerin”.”

The Edgar Degas painting is just crying out to be animated. I hope the artist will forgive me this modification and deviant interpretation of his artwork. Have fun looking at it.
Stay tuned, until the next creative animation…
