Edgar Degas (1834-1917): Edgar Degas was a cynical, loner and snob who, as the son of Parisian banker, could dedicate his life to art. In 1874, he organized the first exhibition of independent artists who were dubbed the impressionists by a critic. He however continued to consider himself an unsentimental realist. "I know nothing of inspiration, spontaneity and temperament". The ballet of l'Opera was one of Degas' favorite subjects which he captured using subtle, seemingly accidental compositions with unexpected perspectives.
