14. well, for one thing, Degas did not want to paint outdoors and said so.

So I am including (somehow, I dunno how) a brief "Meanwhile, Cezanne packed his brushes and departed for a little fishing town, L'Estaque, where he famously declared 'Everything in nature takes its form from the sphere, the cone or the cylinder.' It reportedly sent Renoir into raptures. For Georges Braque, the little rooftops in the town became little cubes.

Yes, I agree that Degas was interested in the vibrant city life in Paris. Lautrec was a co-celebrant of that life.
