Degas. "I would like to be illustrious and unknown"

FRENCH LANGUAGE

"I would like to be illustrious and unknown," said Edgar Degas. Illustrated, he is, by his dancers, his jockeys, his women in the bath.
Also unknown, as these themes obscure the rest of the work, history paintings, portraits, landscapes, as much as the work has devoured private life.
Over a sixty year career whose richness and coherence Henri Loyrette restores, we then discover the insatiable technical curiosity, the constant search for new expressions, the obvious continuity of the melodic line.
