A Edgar Degas, un famoso artista del siglo XIX, se le suele vincular con el inicio del movimiento impresionista en París. Sin embargo, no encajó exactamente en una categoría y, en cambio, desarrolló su propio estilo único, inspirándose en las obras de los viejos maestros, el cuerpo humano en movimiento y la vida cotidiana de la ciudad.

Proveniente de una familia adinerada, Degas ayudó a organizar exposiciones de arte "impresionista", pero luego se distanció del grupo para seguir un enfoque más realista. Se centró en representar las bulliciosas calles de París y sus pasatiempos populares, como las carreras de caballos, los cabarets y, sobre todo, el ballet. Degas creó alrededor de 1.500 obras de arte con bailarinas, utilizando ángulos y perspectivas inusuales. Sus pinturas y dibujos mostraron la fisicalidad y la disciplina de la danza.

Este libro explora el notable arte de Degas a través de ilustraciones de piezas como Foyer de la Danse y Musicians in the Orchestra. Ofrece una introducción esencial a un artista que forjó su propio camino, creando un mundo de influencia clásica, composiciones audaces y una profunda fascinación por el movimiento. Las obras de Degas siguen siendo admiradas y han tenido un profundo impacto en el arte de su época.

    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.
