Edgar Degas

Edgar Degas Edgar Degas (born Hilaire-Germain-Edgar De Gas; 19 July 1834 27 September 1917) was a French artist famous for his paintings, sculptures, prints, and drawings.
He is especially identified with the subject of dance; more than half of his works depict dancers.
He is regarded as one of the founders of Impressionism, although he rejected the term, preferring to be called a realist.
He was a superb draftsman, and particularly masterly in depicting movement, as can be seen in his renditions of dancers, racecourse subjects and female nudes.
His portraits are notable for their psychological complexity and for their portrayal of human isolation.
