Degas..........................................

Edgar Degas (1834-1917) was a seriously talented and prolific man, best known for his paintings.  While he is often lumped in with the Impressionists, he resisted that label.  Hard to disagree.  He is well known for his paintings of dancers.  None are shown below, but you can find them here.   The wiki on Degas is here.  Some of my favorite paintings are below:
