Degas House

In the fall of 1872, Edgar Degas traveled from France to the home of his American relatives, a suburban mansion in the heart of New Orleans' Esplanade Ridge. There, Degas again began to draw and to expand his artistic talents for five months, observing the city's Creole influences and post-Civil War life and capturing his thoughts in paintings and letters. At the Degas House, Degas' descendants personally guide visitors through the home and neighborhood that once hosted the Impressionist Master, whose legacy endures in the paintings of ballerinas and landscapes hanging in thousands of museums worldwide.

Equal parts historic landmark, public museum, and bed and breakfast, the Degas House welcomes patrons to explore its richly decorated interiors lined with more than 100 Degas painting and sculpture reproductions, the palette of greens, golds, and whites dressing the dining room, bedrooms, and studios. Led by the artist's great-grand nieces, tours begin with the film Degas in New Orleans: A Creole Sojourn chronicling the artist's Louisiana adventure. Guests often stay in the upper-story bedrooms or host special events in the outdoor courtyard and grand patio.
