Edgar Degas (1834-1917)
Born: July 19, 1834; Paris, France
Died: September 27, 1917; Paris, France
Art Movement: Impressionism, Realism
Edgar Degas' personal wealth gave him freedom to devote himself to art. He shunned formal training, preferring to study the Renaissance through frequent trips to Italy and - on his own doorstep - copying in the Louvre. There in 1862, he and Manet met in front of a Velazquez. Degas, who never ceased investigating every technical aspect of painting and drawing, had spent three years on the basics of light and colour. Degas exhibited with them right from the start in 1874, although he never wholly accepted their doctrines or techniques for himself. He only signed his works when he sold or exhibited them, thus controlling their number and value in the marketplace.
