Convalescent - Man Looking At Degas

One of my all time favourite painters is Degas and on todays painting you see his Convalescent. The painting depicts a woman who's succombed in great sorrow. The painting attests to Degas's interest in the world of women. My figure doesn't seem to be that interested in the painting, but is focused on something we cannot see. I thought the contrast between the woman in great sorrow and the man not caring much is quite interesting.

kind regards, Gerard
