About the Artist
The reputation of the French artist Edgar Degas (1834-1917) as one of the giants of 19th-century art is undiminished. He had a special predilection for ballet and for over forty years created paintings and sculptures that celebrate all aspects of the dance.
Though he preferred to be called a realist, the French artist Edgar Degas (1834-1917) was one of the founders of impressionism with Monet. He shared with the Impressionists an interest in modern life””in Paris’ dance halls and cabarets, its racetracks, its opera and ballet stages. He was known mainly as a painter, but modeling occupied an increasingly important place in his work. After beginning to lose his eyesight after his fiftieth birthday, Degas became increasingly dependent on his sense of touch and so started to turn from painting to sculpting. Although during the last period of his life he hardly ever showed his work to anybody, he decided after working the Dancer for than two years, to send his work to the impressionist exhibition in Paris.
The mini magnet set is a great gift idea for Degas or ballet lovers alike at an appreciable price.
