Dear Christine and Pearbear,

I did not mean to start an argument on my debut here. In fact, only wanted to hear the interesting story miss marple had to tell.

miss marple, I hope I did not quote you out of context - A Sound Bite. I have read your posts on this and understand you completely.

Again,

Paddy

Has she accounted for her whereabouts during the Fall of 1888?

There's good reason to believe she was in France.

Oh yes she does. With all respect to the deceased, but she was definitely not a beauty. Some would even say she looks rather masculine - and that goes for the photograph with her husband as well.

All the best

Unless he's till alive that's an impossible goal. Know anyone 135+ years old who would be a likely suspect?

She doesn't look too bad in her younger days, Glenn. Bless her.

Said Abberline never spoke of the case again. Was his Pall Mall interview a hoax? Did I miss something?

She probably missed it (the Abberline interviews)

Kind regards

In a painting alternatively called Interior and The Rape, Degas painted a giant menacing man barring the door of a small room while a woman sits cowering on the other side of the room. This is one of Degas' strongest paintings, as anyone who has seen it in Philadelphia or on tour will know. The suitcase in the middle of the picture glooms with an unearthly light. You wonder why Cornwell doesn't accuse Degas or Cezanne of being the Ripper. The reason is simple. These artists are as invulnerable to Cornwell's investigations as Cornwell is invulnerable to my criticism. Poor Walter Sickert is not."


Joseph Phelan, November 2002.

~~~

The Impressionists broke up after 1886, and Degas began keeping more and more to himself, concentrating, along with his painting, on his photography and sculpture. He began favoring pastels over oils, mixing them with different media and experimenting with a variety of techniques, and it was now, curiously enough, that his work began to show distinctly Impressionist qualities. And, even more curiously, these beautiful, luminous works – many of which show nude women in intimate moments, bathing, combing their hair, etc., and are considered by some modern art critics as proof of Degas's misogynist outlook - now found acceptance with the public.

In 1894, a French Army Officer of Jewish descent, Alfred Dreyfuss, was falsely accused of treason, and this caused a great uproar in French Society. Degas took the part of the Anti-Dreyfuss crowd and revealed himself to be rabidly antisemitic. Since he couldn't do anything in halves, he topped his unsavory behavior by breaking off contacts with all Jews – including his childhood friends, the Halevys, and his long-time art colleagues, Renoir and Cezanne.

~~~
I'm surprised that none of you caught this, but Degas, in that image, managed to paint the worlds first laptop[ computer (by the lamp). The rag on it, no doubt, was the first screen cleaning tool.

The man truly was a visionary.
