1. Many artists in Degas' time thought that they could be better writers by copying famous paintings.

2. Many artists in Degas' days thought that they could be better writers by copying famous paintings.

3. Many artists in Degas' times thought that they could be better writers by copying famous paintings.

4. Many artists in Degas' day thought that they could be better writers by copying famous paintings

(Are they all grammatical? Do we have to use 'time' or 'day'? Are they all the same?)

In every sentence, 'writers' needs to be replaced with 'painters.' These sentences don't make sense as they are.

You are right, Writeacher. I corrected the errors. Thank you.
