Edgar Degas and the horses

Edgar Degas: who does not know his drawings and paintings of bathers or dancers by Edgar Degas – less widely known, but just as beautiful are the portraits of horses and riders. Over the years of his creative work (1853-1908) Edgar Degas created several pictures of horses and riders. Groups of people with horses in the landscape, scenes at the racetrack, horses in training – Degas captured special atmospheres in wonderful color moods.
