About Edgar Degas
French painter, graphic artist, and sculptor. The son of a wealthy banker, he
entered the cole des Beaux-Arts in 1855. He spent much time in Italy studying
and copying the Old Masters and became a skilled draftsman, producing history
paintings and portraits. In the 1860s he was introduced to Impressionism by
douard Manet and gave up his academic aspirations, turning for his subject
matter to the fast-moving city life of Paris, particularly the ballet, theatre,
circus, racetrack, and cafs. Influenced by Japanese prints and the new medium
of photography, he used displaced figure groupings and unfamiliar perspective
to create figure groups seen informally and in movement, similar in effect to
snapshots. His fascination with the ballet and the racetrack sprang from his
interest in picturing people absorbed in the practiced movements of their
occupations. He often worked in pastel, his favourite medium, producing series
of women, bathers, ballerinas, and horse races. From 1880 he modeled wax
figures, which were cast in bronze after his death. He was the first of the
Impressionists to achieve recognition.
