Consumed by obsessive principles and struggling with failing eyesight, Edgar Degas's determination to capture everyday life was evident in every mark he made. Never fully satisfied, many of Degas’s drawings and sculptures were kept private during his lifetime. Now, through close examination, they can be seen as some of the most beautifully detailed and expressive works in the modern era. Using accounts by friends and commentators, as well as letters written by Degas himself, this film reveals a more complex truth behind one of the most influential French artists of the late 19th-century, exploring the complex workings of Degas’s artistic mind.
