Ballerinas adjusting their tutus - Edgar Degas

In his early years in the 1860s, Edgar Degas made the Paris Opera the main subject of his work. He explored its various moments and spaces: the regular training sessions, the backstage and the stage. Here, the artist masters elliptical shortcuts and the practice of close-ups. He knows how to synthesize a series of movements, suggested by a drawing more and more cursive which confers to the painting a surprising expressive value.

L'œuvre en bref

In his early years in the 1860s, Edgar Degas made the Paris Opera the main subject of his work. He explored its various moments and spaces: the regular training sessions, the backstage and the stage. Here, the artist masters elliptical shortcuts and the practice of close-ups. He knows how to synthesize a series of movements, suggested by a drawing more and more cursive which confers to the painting a surprising expressive value.

The artist

Born in Paris into a wealthy bourgeois family, Edgar Degas (1834-1917) quickly abandoned his law studies. An avid visitor to the Louvre Museum, he showed an exceptional aptitude for drawing by copying artists such as Rembrandt. Living on the family fortune and not seeking financial gain for his art, he studied painting in 1855 in the studio of Louis Lamothe, a student of Ingres. The artistic legacy of Ingres fascinated Degas and inspired him throughout his life. Considered an impressionist, Degas claimed to be a realist. However, he participated in several Impressionist exhibitions from 1874 to 1886. In the early 1870s, Degas suffered from progressive blindness. Blinded by the sunlight, he will paint almost only interior scenes, with artificial lighting, unlike the impressionists of his time.
