Answer : Degas

The question was put yesterday in the "This also made the cut" post, regarding the impressionist who turned to photography late in life.

Edgar Degas, the patron saint of pastel artists, who never married, and lived into his eighties, is the answer.

My favorite thing that he said is something like: I wish I had enough money to buy back all of my previous works.
