ABOUT THIS PIECE Edgar Degas' At the Races in the Countryside was created in 1869 and is in Museum of Fine Arts Boston. The size of the work is 36,5 x 55,9 cm and is made of oil on canvas. At once merging and disrupting the traditional categories of landscape, genre scene, and family portrait, Degas depicts a scene of upper-class leisure: a visit to the horse race. While mounted onlookers glimpse three jockeys and horses mid-race within a sparse Normandy landscape, the subject of this painting seems rather to be the intimate scene of modern life, leisure, and labor taking place in the foreground. In the driver’s seat of a horse-drawn carriage, Degas’s smartly-dressed friend Paul Valpinçon—echoed by his loyal canine companion—gazes down at his passengers: his wife, holding a parasol, and his infant son Henri, asleep in the arms of his working-class wet nurse, her breast still exposed. The Artist: Edgar Degas (1834 - 1917) was a French artist famous for his pastel drawings and oil paintings of ballerinas. Degas also produced bronze sculptures, prints, and drawings. Degas is especially identified with the subject of dance; more than half of his works depict dancers. Although Degas is regarded as one of the founders of Impressionism.
