The artist

Edgar Degas (1834-1917)

Famous for his dancers, Edgar Degas (1834-1917) is often considered one of the masters of Impressionism, despite defining himself as a realist and an independent. Fascinated by the study of movement, he attached himself to all the motives that represented life: dance, of course, but also horse races. Like his friend Manet, Degas was one of the great painters of modern life, coffee scenes, brothels, milliners, laundresses ... The work of this Parisian and bourgeois artist, very cultured and collector, is marked by his knowledge of the great masters.
