Degas, The Absinthe (1875-1876)

DEGAS’S ABSINTHE: ANALISYS AND CURIOUS FACTS

Once someone asked me what’s beautiful and charming about Degas’s Absinthe. Actually, it’s a painting that doesn’t make you happy; rather, to me, has always had a subheading: “depression”.

It’s a painting depicting with photographic accuracy a scene that anyone who was in Paris at the end of the 19th century could see. However, Degas didn’t portray only a moment, but he rather told a story, in which it’s easy to imagine feelings and thought of the two protagonists.
