Edgar Degas (19 July
1834 – 27 September 1917), born Hilaire-Germain-Edgar Degas, was a
French artist famous for his work in painting, sculpture,
printmaking and drawing. He is regarded as one of the founders of
Impressionism although he rejected the term, and preferred to be
called a realist. A superb draughtsman, he is especially identified
with the subject of the dance, and over half his works depict
dancers. These display his mastery in the depiction of movement, as
do his racecourse subjects and female nudes. His portraits are
considered to be among the finest in the history of art.
