Edgar Degas (1834 - 1917)
Edgar Degas was born into a moderately wealthy French family. As an artist, he is famous for paintings, sculptures, prints, and drawings. He is especially identified with dance (more than half his works were on this subject) and with horse racing. He is considered one of the founders of Impressionism, but he preferred to be called a realist. (abstracted from Wikipedia)
Painting is easy when you don't know how, but very difficult when you do. ~ Edgar Degas
