Impressionists: Degas

The art of Hilaire-Germaine-Edgar Degas is familiar to many who know of his graceful ballet dancers. He was influenced by the painters of the Renaissance period, and admired the works of the painter Jean Auguste Ingres. In this program, art scholars analyse the work of this Impressionist, who captured the dancer in motion, and produced work, done mostly in pastels, depicting ballerinas on- and off-stage, at rest, and in groups. The Impressionists: Degas effectively combines images of his art with footage of the Royal Ballet of Birmingham, England.
