Ο Εντγκάρ Ντεγκά (Edgar Degas) (πλήρες όνομα (γαλλ. Edgar Germain Hilaire Degas) 19 Ιουλίου 1834-27 Σεπτεμβρίου 1917 ήταν Γάλλος ζωγράφος, χαράκτης και γλύπτης, από τους σημαντικότερους του 19ου αι., που υπό ορισμένες προϋποθέσεις ανήκει στο κίνημα του ιμπρεσιονισμού·[1] κατά την έκφραση του Μπωντλαίρ «αγαπούσε το ανθρώπινο σώμα σαν μια αρμονία υλική, σαν ένα ωραίο αρχιτεκτόνημα, και πάνω από όλα την κίνηση».

Βιογραφικά στοιχεία

Γεννήθηκε στο Παρίσι, γιος του τραπεζίτη Ωγκύστ και της Σελεστίν. Στα 13 χάνει τη μητέρα του, κάτι που για τον ίδιο ήταν προσωπική τραγωδία, και, στα 21, μετά από ολιγόχρονες σπουδές νομικής, μπαίνει στη Σχολή Καλών Τεχνών και παίρνει τα πρώτα μαθήματα ζωγραφικής από τον Λουί Λαμότ, παλαιό μαθητή του Ενγκρ. Ένα χρόνο μετά γνωρίζει τον ίδιο τον Ενγκρ και την επόμενη χρονιά, πηγαίνει στην Ιταλία να μελετήσει ζωγράφους της Αναγέννησης. Επισκέπτεται τη Φλωρεντία, τη Νάπολι και τη Ρώμη.Το 1859 επιστρέφει στο Παρίσι κι ανοίγει ατελιέ. Τρία χρόνια μετά γνωρίζει τον Εντουάρ Μανέ, κι επηρεασμένος εντάσσεται στον Ιμπρεσσιονισμό. Το 1870 ξεσπά ο Γαλλοπρωσικός Πόλεμος και επιστρατεύεται για να υπηρετήσει στο πυροβολικό, όπου άρχισε να εμφανίζει πρόβλημα όρασης. Δύο χρόνια μετά ταξιδεύει στη Νέα Ορλεάνη για να επισκεφθεί συγγενείς και επιστρέφει μετά από ένα χρόνο. Το 1874 πεθαίνει ο πατέρας του, κληρονομώντας του πολλά χρέη, κι έτσι αναγκάζεται να πωλήσει μεγάλο μέρος απ' τη συλλογή του. Το 1880 κερδίζει τον σεβασμό και την καταξίωση όλου του παριζιάνικου καλλιτεχνικού κόσμου.
Καλλιτεχνική δραστηριότητα
Μάθημα χορού, 1874, Παρίσι, Μουσείο Jeu de Paume

Ο Ντεγκά αναγνωρισμένος ως αυθεντία της κινούμενης ανθρώπινης μορφής ήταν κυρίως γνωστός για τις χορεύτριες του, που τις απεικόνισε σε πίνακες, χαρακτικά και γλυπτά σε μπρούντζο.

Το 1881 εξέθεσε το πρώτο γλυπτό του, τη χορεύτρια δεκατεσσάρων ετών (Σάο Πάολο, Museu de Arte), που το ακολούθησαν ένα πλήθος μικρά κέρινα προπλάσματα (μετά το θάνατό του χυτεύτηκαν σε χαλκό) με θέμα γυναικεία γυμνά, χορεύτριες, άλογα κ.λ.π.

Καθώς η όρασή του χειροτέρευε, ο Ντεγκά στράφηκε προς τη γλυπτική και τα παστέλ, που δεν απαιτούσαν οξεία όραση. Το 1908 η όρασή του χειροτερεύει και σταματά οριστικά να ασχολείται με την τέχνη. Του κάνουν έξωση από το σπίτι του, και παρά το γεγονός ότι βρέθηκε καινούργιο στούντιο, αυτός συνέχισε να τριγυρνά στους δρόμους του Παρισιού σαν τυφλός Όμηρος. Τέσσερα χρόνια μετά, το Μητροπολιτικό Μουσείο Τέχνης (Νέα Υόρκη) αγοράζει το έργο του "Μπαλλαρίνες" ξοδεύοντας ποσό αστρονομικό για την εποχή, και μάλιστα για ιμπρεσιονιστικό πίνακα.

Το 1917 πεθαίνει στο Παρίσι, στις 27 Σεπτεμβρίου, σε ηλικία 83 ετών. Τη σορό του συνοδεύουν, μεταξύ άλλων, ο Κλωντ Μονέ κι ο Ζαν Λουΐ Φορέν.
