Degas House honor

If you are a fan of impressionist work, a tremendous honor was presented to a house in NOLA. The Degas House received the Maisons des Illustres or “Houses of the Famous” official marker from French Ambassador to the United States, Philippe Etienne.

Founded in 1996, the Degas House is the only surviving past home and studio of French impressionist Edgar Degas, who completed 18 paintings there. The Maisons des Illustres network includes the homes of writers, musicians, composers, actors, scientists, designers and world leaders, such as Monet, Yves Saint Laurent, Marie Curie and more.
