Edgar Degas (1834-1917) was born in Paris and studied at the École des Beaux-Arts, where he grew his interest in the human figure. He travelled to Italy to continue with his studies and later returned to Paris where he met other Impressionist painters. He represented his birthplace in his paintings, drawings and sculptures that show different aspects of Parisian modern life.
