Edgar Degas was caught early in the art. With talent and great love for art, he passed through the training as a painter. Descriptions describe Degas as inconspicuous and slightly annoying. The eyes dark and always introverted. When Degas tried to copy Old Master one day in one of the galleries of the Louvre, he met Manet . The painter had an open and charming character and was already an experienced artist. Degas is working on an etching and the older painter saw immediately what unsatisfactory result the completion would be. Manet expressed criticism and since that day the two artists had a close friendship. Degas made his entry into the Bohème Impressionist artist scene.

Degas did not become a typical impressionist. He lacked temperament and freedom. The artist said of his own works: "There is no art that is less spontaneous than mine." During his training, Degas spent time with the great Ingres, who recommended to the young talent, "Draw lines and then more lines .. "Degas preferred the work in the studio, it did not draw him out into the landscape, Edgar Degas was drawn to ballet and the theater, his works show insights into life, dancers seem like snapshots. Degas, before each project, made numerous sketches and approached the subject through painstaking hard work: Degas is regarded as an artist who cultivates hardship French never loose their contours, his love for the drawing is clearly visible.

The charismatic Manet and the introverted Degas long maintained a friendship that was unusual even for the art scenes in Paris. The highest proof of friendship with Degas was the making of a double portrait of Manet and his wife. One day Degas visited his friend and noticed that the impulsive Manet stabbed the painting with a knife. Edgar took the picture and left the house. The two never spoke again. © Meisterdrucke
