    Gustave Caillebotte - The Floor Scrapers (1875-6)

    Original on top, later version below

    "Despite the effort Caillebotte put into the painting, it was rejected by France’s most prestigious art exhibition, The Salon, in 1875. The depiction of working-class people in their trade, not fully clothed, shocked the jurors and was deemed a ‘vulgar subject matter.’ 

    The images of the floor scrapers came to be associated with Degas’s paintings of washerwomen, also presented at the same exhibition and similarly scorned as ‘vulgar’”.

    Learn About Dick Bruna’s Illustration Methods for the Miffy Series.

    Watching Dick Bruna work in this video is just magic! I loved Miffy growing up, and looking back now I’m appreciating Bruna’s work on a whole other level! The colours and lines, his method of reducing images only to essential forms. Amazing.

    Incredible! Always loved Miffy, even more so now because of all the hard work and dedication to simplicity - the hardest to master!
