DEGAS-PASSIONE AND PERFECTION, docufilm directed by David Bickerstaff, will offer a unique vision on the personal and creative life of Degas, investigating his relationship with the Impressionist movement, his fascination with the dance.
The spectators will discover the story of his obsessive search for perfection through the experimentation of new techniques and the study of the masters of the past, including Italian Renaissance artists and contemporary painters such as Ingres and Delacroix. A study that began from his personal Grand Tour in Italy and that developed year after year thanks to the constant attendance of galleries and museums in Paris, first of all the Louvre.
Sinuous dancers, coffee interiors, horse racing, family portraits, elegant female nudes. Constant research, study of the masters of the past, continuous visits to the Louvre Museum.
This is the world in which DEGAS-PASSION AND PERFECTION takes us through the halls of the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge, home to the largest collection of Degas in the United Kingdom, to move to Paris and Italy, where Degas spent the years of training and where he was able to reunite with his paternal grandfather, René Hilaire De Gas, who moved to Naples following the French Revolution.
