Personal Thoughts on Degas • Now answer one of the following ?’s or come up with your own ideas how your artwork relates to your life. • Take all the time provided and write at least a half page (you will be sharing these with your neighbor when we’re done) • Do you think it’s fair for people to show his sculptures when he never intended them to be scene?
