1876 Edward Burne-Jones [British Pre-Raphaelite Painter, 1833-98] ~ Days of Creations Angels
In the Days of Creation, each day shows a corresponding number of angels, each angel holds a globe that corresponds to the events of that day.
The 1st angel stands alone and the crystal globe shows light being separated from Darkness.
The angel of the 2nd day holds a globe showing the separation of the heavens and the waters.
The 3rd angel holds a globe wherein the earth brings forth grass, plants, and fruit-bearing trees.
In the colors of the 4th day*, Burne-Jones transitions from darkness to light. The last three panels show the influence of the sun and heavenly bodies.
The angel of the 5th day stands at the sea’s edge strewn with seashells and holds a globe showing the waters and the birds and living creatures.
"And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good. And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth. And the evening and the morning were the fifth day."
The angel of the 6th day actually shows both the 6th and 7th days. The angel holds a globe that shows the creation of living creatures, with Humankind created in his image. Adam and Eve appear in the garden, with a foreshadowing of the downfall that is to come: The Tree of Knowledge and the coiled serpent appear slightly behind.
The angel of the 7th day, the day of rest, sits at the feet of the others. via

1876-7 Edgar Degas (French Impressionist, 1834-1917) ~ The Star
Degas’ dancers were often prostitutes. Season tickets could be bought to get to know the dancers more intimately. See the man in the background? Men would commonly pay extra for front row seats to ‘get in on the action’. We view the dancer from a raised perspective, in what’s probably a very expensive box. Most contemporary analysis of Degas focuses on the ‘male gaze’ and its objectification of women. via
