In the late 1880's, Edgar Degas developed a passion for photography. He captured dancers and nudes, which were used for reference in most of his drawings and paintings. Degas was identified as a Impressionist artist, although he rejected this term and referred himself as a Realist. An Impressionist paints realities of the world around them using bright and dazzling colors, concentrating on the effects of light, infusing their scenes with immediacy. Over half of his art work depicts dancers, displaying his mastery of depiction of movement. In this exhibition you will view Degas' most famous artworks, dancers of modern life.
