The Musée d’Orsay pays tribute to Edgar Degas on the centenary of his death with the exhibition 'Degas Danse Dessin’. The artistic creation of Degas and the main themes (notably drawing and dance) of the exhibition are explored by showing extracts of texts (published in 1937) by his friend the writer and poet Paul Valéry in resonance with his artistic works. This tribute offers a new perspective on the personality of Degas and his art. The ‘Notebooks’ by Valéry and the drawings of Edgar Degas (as well as paintings and sculptures) reveal the source of their inspiration and the beginnings of their works.
