Spotlight - Edgar Degas: The Complete Works

This month Spotlight looks at the complete works of Edgar Degas, considered one of the founders of Impressionism and perhaps most famous for his depictions of dancers.

Early in his career, his ambition was to be a history painter, a calling for which he was well prepared by his rigorous academic training and close study of classic 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.
