Dancers At The Bar By Jacob T. Secrest


Original Acrylic on Canvas

16×12 Unframed

Dancers At The Bar after Edgar Degas. He is especially identified with the subject of dance; more than half of his works depict dancers. He is regarded as one of the founders of Impressionism, although he rejected the term, preferring to be called a realist. He was a superb draftsman, and particularly masterly in depicting movement, as can be seen in his rendition of dancers. His portraits are notable for their psychological complexity and for their portrayal of human isolation. As his subject matter changed, so, too, did Degas’s technique. The dark palette that bore the influence of Dutch painting gave way to the use of vivid colors and bold brushstrokes.

Artist James T. SecrestOriginal Acrylic on Canvas & Watercolor/Ink Artist, specializing in impressionism and contemporary art.

Growing up north of Dallas, my family would regularly vacation in the Tetons and Jackson Hole, WY. This became a central subject of my early artwork. After moving to the Idaho side of the Tetons, I started my own family which allowed me to live in this beautiful part of the country surrounded by some of the most photographed/painted landscapes. However, I often return to my roots in Texas to capture the excitement of a more fast-passed environment.

Ever since I can remember, art has played a huge role in filling my free-time. Painting allows me to explore new perspectives, capture a time that I’d like to revisit, or express inner emotions. For many years, life and a young family drew me away from my passion. However, after getting through some difficult personal times, I have rekindled that love for art as a means of personal satisfaction and the joy it brings to others.
