Edgar Degas - Houses On Cliffs Above A Bay
Item Details
Description
Artist: Degas - Title: Houses On Cliffs Above A Bay - Medium: Fine Art Reproduction Giclee on Archival Canvas - Image Size: Approximately 13.5 inches x 20 inches - Framed: Unframed on Unstretched Canvas - Edgar Degas was a French artist famous for his work in painting, sculpture, printmaking and drawing. He is regarded as one of the founders of Impressionism although he rejected the term, and preferred to be called a realist. A superb draftsman, he is especially identified with the subject of the dance, and over half of his works depict dancers. These display his mastery in the depiction of movement, as do his racecourse subjects and female nudes. His portraits are notable for their psychological complexity and depiction of human isolation. - Early in his career, he wanted 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.
