    Edgar Degas House Tour

    Led by the great-grandniece of the famous Impressionist artist himself, this guided tour of the historic Degas House takes you through Edgar Degas’ former New Orleans home and art studio. Experience first-hand the setting that inspired many of his masterpieces, and tour the surrounding Creole neighborhood to see locations referenced in Degas' New Orleans letters. Take a walk along New Orleans’ tree-lined Esplanade Avenue to the Degas House, the only home of Degas anywhere in the world that’s open to the public. This historic house is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is included in the French National Order of Arts and Letters. Here, you’ll meet the great-grandnieces of the legendary French Impressionist artist himself. One of these professional art historians will be your guide for this walking tour, providing you with personal insight and intimate details about the artist’s life and work. Start by watching the award-winning documentary Degas in New Orleans, a Creole Sojourn. Travel back in time to the 1800s to when Degas was one of the leading artists of the French Impressionist movement. As you’ll learn, his full talent didn’t truly emerge until he spent a year living at the house with his family, prominent New Orleans cotton brokers, from 1872 to 1873. According to art historians and Degas scholars, all of his 18 paintings made in New Orleans were created in this house. You’ll tour both the two main houses – which double now as a museum and bed and breakfast – as well as the courtyard and the artist’s studio. Beautifully restored period furnishings are on display inside the house, re-creating the ambience of Degas' times. As you wander, you’ll see first-hand the settings outside of Paris that inspired many of Degas’ most famous paintings, and you’ll admire reproductions of his paintings adorned the walls. Be sure to check out the gift shop for one-of-a-kind Degas-inspired souvenirs!
