Exhibition on Screen, Seventh Art Productions Ltd Edgar Degas (19 July 1934 - 27 September 1917) was a French artist famous for his paintings, scultptures, prints and drawings - he is especially identified with the subject of dance; more than half of his works depict dancers. Regarded as one of the founders of Impressionism he rejected the term, preferring to be called a realist. He was a superb draftsman, and particularly masterly in depicting movement, as can be seen in his rendition of dancers, racecourse subjects and female nudes. "Art is not what you see, but what you make others see." "Painting is easy when you don't know how, but very difficult when you do." Based on an exhibition at the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge, this film is brought to you by Seventh Art Productions Ltd.
