Edgar Degas (1834-1917): Considered to be one of the cornerstones of the Impressionist movement, Edgar Degas revolutionized the use of color in modern art. Renowned for his paintings of ballerinas and Parisian café life, the work of Degas also engaged in new techniques exploring new materials in art. In addition Degas was also connected to some of the more famous artists of his time, including Manet, Renoir, and Monet. Join the discussion as we look at the art and times of Degas and enjoy his masterpieces. This lecture will also examine works that will be featured in the upcoming Degas exhibition at the Houston Museum of Fine Art.
