SUPPLEMENTAL READING:

   

Edgar Degas (UK/ˈdɡɑː/US/dˈɡɑː,dəˈɡɑː/;[1][2] 

born Hilaire-Germain-Edgar De Gas

French: [ilɛːʁ ʒɛʁmɛ̃ ɛdɡaʁ də ɡa]

19 July 1834 – 27 September 1917)

was a French Impressionist artist

famous for his pastel drawings and oil paintings.

    

Degas also produced bronze sculpturesprints and drawings.

Degas is especially identified with the subject of dance;

more than half of his works depict dancers.[3]

Although Degas is regarded as one of the founders of Impressionism,

he rejected the term, preferring to be called a realist,[4]

and did not paint outdoors as many Impressionists did.

    

Degas was a superb draftsman,

and particularly masterly in depicting movement,

as can be seen in his rendition of dancers and bathing female nudes.

In addition to ballet dancers and bathing women,

Degas painted racehorses and racing jockeys,

as well as portraits.

His portraits are notable for their psychological complexity

and for their portrayal of human isolation.[5]

    

At the beginning of his career,

Degas wanted to be a history painter,

a calling for which he was well prepared by his rigorous academic training

and close study of classical art.

In his early thirties, he changed course,

and by bringing the traditional methods of a history painter

to bear on contemporary subject matter,

he became a classical painter of modern life.[6]
