The Franciscans at a gallop: Mariel Oberthür / Edgar Degas in Normandy: the painter of horses and races

Mariel Oberthür is a historian and author, she published in 2018, "Edgar Degas in Normandy: the painter of horses and races", editions Gourcuff Gradenigo.

Edgar Degas, one of the founders of the Impressionist movement, has often been considered a precursor in his art. This avant-garde side is found in his paintings and sculptures on horses, especially at the Pin races.

Mariel Oberthür with Edgar Degas in Normandy: the painter of horses and races, offers us an in-depth study of the work of the French painter devoted to race horses. She exhibits the artist's composition techniques, sketches and wax figures, which allowed her to perfect the expression of movement in her paintings of equestrian subjects and refutes certain received ideas as to her sources of inspiration.
