Edgar Degas var en fransk konstnär, grafiker och skulptör.

Degas studerade vid École des Beaux-Arts i Paris. Från början var han mycket påverkad av Ingresmåleri, efter att ha studerat hos dennes lärjunge Louis Lamothe. Vid sidan av porträtt var hans tidiga bilder ofta historiemålningar, såsom Semiramis (1861) och Staden Orleans olyckor (1865). Snart började Degas intressera sig för det moderna Parislivet, och tog intryck av Édouard Manet. Ett inflytande från det japanska träsnitten kan också märkas. 1874 deltog Degas i impressionisternas första utställning. Han stod impressonisternas måleri nära med sin böjelse för friluftsmålare och sin strävan att fånga ögonblicksrörelser. Inom sportens och teaterns områden fann han sina mest omhuldade motiv. Hans första målning från kapplöpningsfälten är daterad 1862, hans första bilder från balettdansösernas värld tillkom omkring 1872 (Le foyer de la danse och Répétition d'un ballet). Vid sidan härom målade han vardagliga ämnen som L'absinthe (1877) och Les repasseuses (1884). Senare blev han känd för sina motiv med kvinnor i badet under toalettbestyr. Från slutet av 1870-talet övergick han alltmer till pasteller. Bland dessa verk märks hans La danseuse au bouquet. Degas utförde även välkända teckningar, litografier och monotypier, det senare en av konstnären själv uppfunnen teknik.[1]

Degas bodde hos släktingar i New Orleans, Louisiana mellan 1872 och 1873. En av de målningar som han tog med sig hem till Paris, The Cotton Exchange at New Orleans, var det enda konstverk, som något museum köpte under hans levnad.

Under 1880-talet försämrades hans syn, och han började därför att arbeta med skulptur ochpastellmålning, som inte krävde så bra syn.

Edgar Degas dog i Paris och vilar på Montmartrekyrkogården.
