Step into the past at the Edgar Degas House, once home to the renowned French Impressionist Master. The resplendent hallway from a past era invites you into the elegant house where the artist lived and painted in 1872-73. This New Orleans landmark is the only home or studio of Degasin the world open to visitors and stands as America's most treasured piece of Impressionist history. A large collection of reproductions from his world-famous paintings, including many of those done in New Orleans, adorn the hallways and rooms of this grand old home. The common spaces of the house, including 'Atelier Edgar (Edgar's Studio), the original room believed to be Degas' bedroom and art studio, are open to the public.
A complete restoration of the entire house has brought back eminence and dignity to this historic landmark. Acute attention to the original floor-plans enabled the house to resume its once majestic characteristics. Historic authenticity is reflected throughout the home's interior and exterior including the color selections of the rooms, which were guided by Degas letters home from New Orleans as well as actual paintings he did in the house.
As accommodations for special guests, for an elegant and intimate event, unique meeting space, or an afternoon spent viewing the house and strolling through its classic New Orleans neighborhood, our museum quality, award-winning house has never failed to impress our visitors and guests.
The Degas House is located in a residential area and therefore is comfortably removed from the heart of the city, while nearly devoid of traffic and noise pollution.
About two miles from the Degas House you will find the large and beautiful City Park and New Orleans Museum of Art, while two miles in the other direction one will find the historic French Quarter for which New Orleans is known around the world. Our location is ideally situated to offer the peace and quiet of a bed and breakfast while close to some of New Orleans' most famous attractions.
If you are looking for additional space, please contact the Degas House directly as we would love to accommodate you.
Come and experience New Orleans from the same perspective as the artist himself!
