Edgar Degas

Edgar Degas

Edgar Degas[p] (19 July 1834 27 September 1917), born Hilaire-Germain-Edgar De Gas (French pronunciation: [ilɛʀ ʒɛʁmɛ̃ ɛdɡɑʀ dˈɡɑ]), 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.
