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.

The work of this Parisian and bourgeois artist, very cultured and collector, is marked by his knowledge of the great masters.
