Edgar Degas

Edgar Degas' paintings and sculptures have delighted generations of art gallery goers. Showing everyday scenes, Degas captured his subjects in private moments that delight viewers. Ballet dancers warming up or performing, mothers spending time with their children, women bathing, jockeys riding horses, and people sitting in a cafe. These are just some of the scenes that he captured for all time with his pencil, charcoal, or paint. You can find more about the art world in the Art And Artists Feature and in some of the categories in the Biographies Feature.
