Two Horses in a Pasture

Two Horses in a Pasture is an oil painting that beautifully represents the Impressionism present in Edgar Degas’ pieces, even though he so strongly denied it. The artwork deviates from the realistic academic style to a point where the horses are almost pictorial. It is interesting that Degas would so often reject the title of Impressionist painter because we see in his later pieces a significant effort to do something different. The steps he took away from the academic and naturalistic styles don’t necessarily mean that he would be producing towards Impressionism, but it is difficult to deny the influences.

Degas produced several pieces, and many of them have numerous sketches and studies. In this piece, the dark lines that outline the horse remind of these sketchy lines that define those pencil and pastel studies. It is interesting the choice of the author to leave these strong lines as part of the final piece.

The piece represents two horses grazing on a vast landscape. The horizon line is placed just above the ground, a perspective that was also chosen for his other painting, Racehorses at Longchamp. Likewise, this perspective choice creates this environment of a large and vast landscape. No details, houses or fences are seen in the canvas; the horses are lonely in this landscape.

The horses are brown, the one in the foreground is lighter and has shades of orange composing its pelt, while the one behind is darker, with rougher lines. The grassy area around the horses is portrayed in a yellowy green and almost merge with the horses' hooves. The idea of a grassy landscape is created with vigorous brush strokes. As the grass approaches the horizon line, the strokes are then painted horizontally. The grass gains shades of a bright yellow, as it’s brightened by the sun.

The sky is as deep as it’s detailed. The background is composed of shades of violet and blue and horizontal brushstrokes that help create this atmosphere of greatness. Over these subtle shades in the sky, there are cottony clouds in shades of beige and grey. The most fascinating detail about the sky is the sun that sets on the right side of the painting touching the horizon line. They're not only beautiful tones of orange shade the atmosphere and light the clouds around them, but they also reach the land and color the grass.
