Degas: NOLA-Lover, Impressionist Master, Birthday Boy!

In honor of what would have been Edgar Degas' 179th birthday today, let's take a look at his New Orleans digs. Although he only lived here for four months, New Orleans made a heck of an impression on the painter (har, har). The house, built in 1852, is now a museum, bed-and-breakfast, special event venue, and home to the Edgar Degas Foundation. While living here he created 18 paintings and four drawings.
