Degas, Edgar (French painter, sculptor, 1834-1917)

Note: Important Impressionist artist; unlike other Impressionists, he emphasized composition and drawing, and he usually did not paint outdoors. Degas was primarily concerned with depicting movement, from horses to women in various activities, dressing, bathing, and as cabaret performers.
