Synopsis:

Tells of a the decisive period of Reconstruction during the post-Civil War era in New Orleans when the artist produced some of his finest pieces of artwork. 36 illustrations.


Review:

"...Benfey [has] portrayed...carefully the historical and family background to degas' New Orleans visit before examining his work. One of his startling discoveries is evidence of racial intermarriage in Degas' ancestry, something that art historians seem to have ignored....Strictly speaking, [this] book is neither art history, literary criticism nor social history. It combines the best aspects of all three disciplines in prose that is unfailingly clear and observant."

Kenneth Baker, San Francisco Chronicle Book Review, 01/04/1998

Review:

"[A] deft synthesis of art criticism and historical speculation."

Grace Lichtenstein, Washington Post Book World, 11/30/1997
