About Edgar Degas
With Monet, Edgar Degas (1834-1917) founded the Impressionism art movement. In the Paris artistic world of that time, Degas was known as a painter. However, beginning to lose his eyesight after his fiftieth birthday, Degas started to turn from painting to sculpting. During this last period of his work life, he didn’t expose hi work. However, after working on the Ballerina statue for two years, he decided to showcase it the impressionist exhibition in Paris.
After this exhibition, Edgar Degas never exhibited any of his work again. His other sculptures remained unknown during his lifetime. They were revealed to the public after he died in 1917. Degas’ ballerina statue remains the most iconic sculpture he created.
