Edgar Degas's Creole Compound in New Orleans

Few Degas fans know that the French artist had roots in New Orleans—his mother came from a French-Creole family—or that he spent most of 1872 in the city. The Impressionist's former family home is now a bed and breakfast. Two of Degas's grandnieces offer guided tours of the property and surrounding Esplanade Ridge neighborhood. Reproductions of Degas drawings, paintings and sculptures—including the 18 works he created while living in New Orleans—are displayed in the house. And the nine guest rooms are decorated in historically accurate style, with brass chandeliers, velvet settees and four-poster beds. The third-floor garret rooms are even stocked with pastels and drawing pads. From $194 a night, degashouse.com
