About this title


Edgar Degas traveled to New Orleans in 1872, arriving at a key moment in the cultural history of this most exotic of American cities: the decisive period of Reconstruction following the agony of the Civil War. What was it about this war-torn, diverse, and conflicted city that elicited from Degas some of his finest paintings? This fascinating book gives readers the answer. 16 photos.
