Edgar Degas

One of the major representatives of Impressionism |

Painter of Ballerinas |

Edgar Degas (1834 – 1917), born Hilaire Germain Edgar de Gas, was a French artist and sculptor. The eldest son of a wealthy Parisian banker, he began studying law in Paris, discontinuing his studies after just one year in order to begin an apprenticeship with the painter Louis Lamothe and later attend the Ecole des Beaux-Arts. And so began Degas’ successful career as an artist, one that was strongly defined by impressionism. In contrast to his contemporary colleagues, however, his personal style was characterised by precise lines and a clearly structured composition. While Degas created numerous portraits, he also concentrated on special pictorial themes, which he changed constantly, from the ballet to jockeys and horses, Parisian nightlife, and women bathing.
