I take that back. I've never seen this drawing before, but the diagonal strokes resemble Ingres technique, and Degas was devoted to him, especially in his youth.

Degas - Dave

something about edgar degas:

degas made several studies of his youngest brother rene de gas - eleven years his junior - in the period between his secondary school graduation and his extended trip to italy. this study remained in degas's studio until his death.
