Mucha gente sabe que Edgar Degas (1834-1917) fue un artista francés y uno de los principales exponentes del impresionismo, cuyas pinturas capturan de manera brillante el movimiento de los bailarines de ballet. Lo que, quizás, no saben es que a mediados de los años veinte había realizado más de 700 copias de obras de otros artistas; que produjo 1.500 estudios de bailarines de ballet; y que, aunque Degas exhibió solo una escultura en su vida, se encontraron 150 figuras de cera en su estudio después de su muerte. Este libro presenta una impresión instantánea de su vida y obra, con una variedad de hechos y cifras irresistibles convertidos en infografías para revelar al artista detrás de las imágenes.

About the Artist

Edgar Degas

Edgar Degas (1834 – 1917) was a French Impressionist artist famous for his pastel drawings and oil paintings. Degas also produced bronze sculptures, prints, and drawings. Degas is especially identified with the subject of dance; more than half of his works depict dancers. Although Degas is regarded as one of the founders of Impressionism, he rejected the term, preferring to be called a realist, and did not paint outdoors as many Impressionists did.

Degas was a superb draftsman, and particularly masterly in depicting movement, as can be seen in his rendition of dancers and bathing female nudes. In addition to ballet dancers and bathing women, Degas painted racehorses and racing jockeys, as well as portraits. His portraits are notable for their psychological complexity and their portrayal of human isolation.

At the beginning of his career, Degas wanted to be a history painter, a calling for which he was well prepared by his rigorous academic training and close study of classical Western art. In his early thirties he changed course, and by bringing the traditional methods of a history painter to bear on contemporary subject matter, he became a classical painter of modern life.
