Edgar Degas: The Private Impressionist is an exhibition comprised of works from a private collection that sheds light on the artist’s favorite themes, as well as the artists he called his friends.
Edgar Degas (1834-1917) is one of the most revered artists of all time, a French Impressionist renowned for his paintings, sculptures, prints and drawings that take the viewer deep into the world of late 19th century Paris. Interested in the psychology and everyday lives of his subjects, Degas is famous for a number of recurring themes in his work, foremost among them the subject of dance and ballet, in particular. Indeed, more than half of his works depict dancers.
