Discussions Discussion Anatomy of Movement
Amy Sutherland, Nov. 11, 2011

Edgar Degas was one of the founders of Impressionism although he rejected the term and preferred to be called a realist. His nudes offer the fullest expression of the fascination with human form. Degas’s nudes demonstrate his meticulous study of anatomy and movement, and his attention to the grace and elegance of the body.

    I like impressionism movement very much. Degas probed into movement of the human body and some of his masterpieces are the famous ballerine in which the movement is probably the main subject of these paintings.
