Edgar Degas Self-Portrait Painting 

Famous artwork by Edgar Degas 

Edgar Degas was a French artist famous for his work in painting, sculpture, printmaking, and drawing. Edgar Degas is considered one of the founders of Impressionism, although he declined the term, and favored to be called a realist. Edgar Degas was a magnificent draughtsman, he is particularly distinguished with dance subjects and over half his compositions depict ballerinas. Displaying his mastery in the depiction of change, his paintings are thought to be among the finest in the history of art. Edgar Degas experimented with an array of techniques, breaking up surface textures with hatching, contrasting dry pastel with wet, and using gouache and watercolors to soften the contours of his figures. Similar to many of the Impressionists, Degas was significantly affected by Japanese prints, which advised novel approaches to a composition. The paintings had bold linear patterns and a sense of flatness that was very distinct from the conventional Western paintings with its panoramic view of the world.

Edgar Degas was born in 1834, a child of a wealthy banker he was educated in the classics of Latin, Greek, and ancient history, at the Lycée Louis-le-Grand in Paris. Degas started by imitating Italian Renaissance paintings at the Louvre and trained in the studio of Louis Lamothe, who taught him the traditional academic style of painting, with importance on lines. Degas was greatly inspired by the paintings that he saw during his numerous long trips to Italy in the late 1850s; Degas made several sketches and drawings of them in his notebooks.
