Degas at the Salon



Impressionism, a historical reconstruction:

Edgar Degas


At the Salon

an impression of his submitted pictures


Which pictures did Degas submit to the Salon?
On this page you will find an accounted impression of the pictures that were submitted by Edgar Degas to the Paris Salon between 1865 and 1870. Most were accepted, just a single one was rejected. Mostly he depicted portraits / figure paintings. Some themes were more classical. Mostly he exhibited under the name Edgar de Gas (iR1). In 1872 and 1873 he didn’t submit. I render the pictures in chronology of submition. Note: If you double click on the first picture of a group of pictures and then click on full screen, you can create a slideshow. Enjoy!


Most pictures of Edgar Degas were accepted at the Salon.

As far as I know just 1 picture of Edgar Degas was rejected for the Salon. It is possible that in years when 1 picture was accepted another was rejected.



Most suggestions are (quite) certain, some are (very) uncertain, see identification of paintings. See link for an account. See link for the explanation of the subscriptions. For info on the sources see at the bottom of the main page about Edgar Degas.
