Degas: the man and his art
We know Degas--an artist passionately devoted to the avant-garde and a driving force behind Impressionism--as the creator of lovely pictures of ballet dancers, striking views of horse races, and intimate scenes of women bathing. But what do we know of his history paintings, portraits, and landscapes? And his personal life? Degas' full story--and a new look at an enigmatic master--awaits rediscovery. Book jacket.
