Oliver Twist is a classic novel written by Charles Dickens. The story is about an orphan boy who is forced to work in a cruel and abusive workhouse. He eventually runs away and joins a group of criminals but is eventually rescued by a kind-hearted gentleman. The novel highlights the harsh realities of life in Victorian England and the plight of the poor and disadvantaged. It is a timeless story that is still relevant today.


Degas was born in Paris, France in 1834. He was the oldest of five children, and his father was a banker. Degas began to study art at a young age, and by the time he was eighteen, he had enrolled in the prestigious Ecole des Beaux-Arts. However, he soon became disillusioned with the teaching methods there and began exploring other painting styles. \n \nBest known for his paintings of everyday life, Degas was interested in capturing movement and often used unusual perspectives to achieve this effect. His work was greatly influenced by Japanese prints, and he is considered one of the founders of Impressionism.


Degas and Dickens were master storytellers, capturing their audience’s attention and holding them spellbound. Both artists had a keen eye for detail, able to evoke a mood or atmosphere with their words or brushstrokes. And as keen observers of human nature, they could capture the nuances of human behavior in their work.
