Painter and sculptor, widely recognized as a founding member of the Impressionist movement, Edgar Degas (1834 – 1917) is known for his masterful technique and style, as well as his melancholic portraits that breathe with life. Taking viewers to a superb exhibition at the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge, this documentary tells the fascinating story of an artist in constant pursuit of perfection. A detailed analysis of his work and written accounts by friends and experts reveal the complex truth behind one of the most influential and inventive French artists of the late 19th century.
