About Edgar Degas
Light, shadows and graceful movements are the hallmarks of Edgar Degas paintings. His works capture subjects, such as dancers and singers, doing everyday activities, yet Degas imbued the pictures and prints with high drama. He used color and the magic of suggested motion to capture endearing vignettes. Edgar Degas was fascinated with the human form, as were many Impressionist painters, although he insisted that his style was more independent. He favored strong lines to define contours and structure in the traditional sense, but also relished the challenge of showing his subjects in unusual contortions and strange angles. Degas wall art is classic, timeless and serenely spectacular.
