Dega's Dancers

Edgar Degas, one of the founders of Impressionism, is well known for his works depicting modern life in Paris, but he is perhaps most famous for his paintings of dancers. This presentation examines Degasís techniques that give a sense of immediacy and motion to these paintings, and the influence Degas has had on the dance world.
