A lavish investigation into the Paris Opera’s influence on Edgar Degas's painting.
From his debut in the 1860s up to his final works after 1900, the Paris Opera formed a focal point of Edgar Degas's paintings. Degas explored the theatre's various spaces -auditorium and stage, private boxes, foyers, and dance studios- and painted those who frequented them: dancers, singers, orchestral musicians, audience members, and subscribers watching from the wings.
