Edgar Degas' creative use of spontaneity and movement established him as an important and memorable artist of the realistic vein. His major works and unconventional techniques are documented in Portrait of an Artist: Edgar Degas - The Unquiet Spirit. Though not overly liked by the critical or popular crowd, Degas established a unique style that has been often copied and admired since. His interest in photography influenced his paintings by contributing a captured-moment quality. Whether depicting dancers, racers, or a day in the city, Degas used unusual angles and lighting. His classification as a realist was debated by the artist himself who deemed his own work a cross between impressionism and the former. Portrait of an Artist: Edgar Degas examines the motivation behind Degas' greatest paintings.
