          Artist details

          French painter, sculptor and collector Edgar Degas was a founder-member of the Impressionist group. Fascinated by line and colour, he would often draw a figure from several angles on a single page. As well as portraiture, in the early 1860s he began also to paint modern life genre scenes including his famous theatre and ballet scenes. Degas experimented with a variety of techniques, and from 1880 onwards, increasingly explored the possibilities of pastel, although he continued to work in oil until the end of his career.
