Degas-ThreeDancersDegas-LesDessinsEdgar Degas (1834-1917), a leading figure in modern art, was an innovator — but very much rooted in tradition. His contribution to the world of art offers access to the world of grace, for the sensitive observer.

Several years after Degas’ passing his friend Henri Riviere (also a painter and printmaker) reproduced 100 Degas works, in a tour-de-force project of 250 portfolios. Woodside Fine Art has one of the portfolios — with 77 original reproductions. Subjects include the full gamut of Degas’ oeuvre: from ballet dancers to bathers; cabaret singers to cotton traders.
