Edgar Degas
Edgar Degas was born into the family of bankers of aristocratic extraction. His mother died in 1847, so the boy's father, Auguste de Gas, and grandfather, Hilaire de Gas, were the most influential figures in his early life.  In this slideshow of his works there  is no spoken commentary, just classical music.
CAUTION: This video slideshow features artistic nudity.
