September 2017: 100 years since the death of Edgar Degas
September 2017 marks 100 years since the death of Edgar Degas (French artist; 19 July 1834 – 27 September 1917):

Edgar Degas is regarded to be one of the founders of Impressionism, although he himself always rejected the term and considered himself a Realist instead. Degas is renowned above all for his outstanding figure painting, and is perhaps best known for his studies of ballerinas.
