This film journeys from the streets of Paris to the heart of the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge, whose extensive collection of Degas’ works is the most representative in Britain. With exclusive access to view rare and diverse works, this is a fascinating story of Degas’ pursuit for perfection through both experimentation with new techniques and lessons learnt from studying the past masters. Using written accounts by friends and commentators, and Degas’ own letters, the film reveals one of the most influential French artists of the late 19th century.
