Racehorses at Longchamp - Edgar Degas

It was at the end of the 19th century that horse racing became a popular sport in France. Edgar Degas, who was passionate about horse racing, produced an important series of paintings on the theme of horse racing, a series entitled "Scenes of Modern Life". On the track or in the fields, Degas showed the power and prestige of these races in his time. Here, the artist depicts riders preparing for a race in the middle of a vast landscape under the twilight sun. Degas gives free rein to his talent as a colorist and his influence from Paul Gauguin.

L'œuvre en bref

It was at the end of the 19th century that horse racing became a popular sport in France. Edgar Degas, who was passionate about horse racing, produced an important series of paintings on the theme of horse racing, a series entitled "Scenes of Modern Life". On the track or in the fields, Degas showed the power and prestige of these races in his time. Here, the artist depicts riders preparing for a race in the middle of a vast landscape under the twilight sun. Degas gives free rein to his talent as a colorist and his influence from Paul Gauguin.

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.
