A beautifully produced literary art book that restores a collection of drawings and pastels to the heart of the life story of one of the great artists of the 19th century.
Edgar Degas is considered to be one of the outstanding draughtsman of the late nineteenth century. His powerful drawings and the pastles are some of the most compelling works in western art.
Delve into the wide range of Degas's work: the images of ballet dancers (which form over half of the artist's oeuvre), jockeys, laundresses, milliners and female nudes, as well as the less well-known landscape drawings.
