About the Artist | Edgar Degas

I had the change to see Degas work in person
at the Musee d'Orse in France and I was so
taken with the originals, each masterfully created
and the colors so unusual and vivid!  The unusual
compositions seemed so spontaneous, dreamlike
in movement and color that I never could have
imagined that they were so meticulously created.  
But as I think back, the amount of detail in some
of the works truly show Degas careful planning.

He had it all: vision, passion, grounding, and even
spontaneity.  No wonder he is recognized as a true master!

If you have the chance to see Degas in person,
I highly recommend it!
