ედგარ დეგა (Edgar Degas)

self-portrait (1834 –1917)

Edgar Degas (US /dˈɡɑː/ or UK /ˈdɡɑː/; born Hilaire-Germain-Edgar De Gas, French: [ilɛːʁ ʒɛʁmɛ̃ ɛdɡaʁ də ɡɑ]; 19 July 1834 – 27 September 1917) was a French artist famous for his paintings, sculptures, prints, and drawings. He is especially identified with the subject of dance; more than half of his works depict dancers. He is regarded as one of the founders of Impressionism, although he rejected the term, preferring to be called a realist. He was a superb draftsman, and particularly masterly in depicting movement, as can be seen in his renditions of dancers, racecourse subjects and female nudes. His portraits are notable for their psychological complexity and for their portrayal of human isolation.

At the beginning of his career, he wanted to be a history painter, a calling for which he was well prepared by his rigorous academic training and close study of classic art. In his early thirties, he changed course, and by bringing the traditional methods of a history painter to bear on contemporary subject matter, he became a classical painter of modern life.

Edgar Degas Quotes

“Art is not what you see, but what you make others see.”

“Art is vice. You don’t marry it legitimately, you rape it.”

“Everyone has talent at twenty-five. The difficulty is to have it at fifty.”

“In painting you must give the idea of the true by means of the false.”

“It is all very well to copy what one sees, but it is far better to draw what one now only sees in one’s memory. That is a transformation in which imagination collaborates with memory.”

“No art is less spontaneous than mine. What I do is the result of reflection and the study of the great masters.”

“One must do the same subject over again ten times, a hundred times. In art nothing must resemble an accident, not even movement.”

“Only when he no longer knows what he is doing does the painter do good things.”

“Painting is easy when you don’t know how, but very difficult when you do.”

“What a delightful thing is the conversation of specialists! One understands absolutely nothing and it’s charming.”
