While considered a founder of Impressionism, Edgar Degas hated the term and considered himself a realist. His paintings display great technical skill as well as artistic sensibilities. His ability to showcase perspectives and subjects differentiated him from most of his contemporaries.
In the 1870’s Degas penned his most renowned works, including Foyer de la Danse and Musicians in the Orchestra. In this time, he drew inspiration from cafes, boulevards, shops, and more. Above all, he spent his time capturing the beauty of natural, everyday humanity.
Although he denied and despised the term, “Impressionist,” it is still important to recognize his contributions to the form. It is certainly true that Degas’ work will remain magnificent and notable. In other words, it is worth noting its technical as well as its emotional beauty.
