“Art is not a matter of what you see, but what you make other people see.” - Edgar Degas

Discover the story behind Edgar Degas' artistic brilliance, see some of his rarest works up close, and uncover the complex story behind this 19th-century master.

Best known for his works depicting a voyeuristic view of life as a ballerina, like The Ballet Class, Dancers in Pink, and Waiting, Degas was obsessed with accurately capturing moments of everyday life. With the help of art experts, detailed explorations of his works, and contemporary accounts written by his friends, family, and even Degas himself, this film paints a complete picture of this complex artist and his pursuit for perfection.
