About this title
Book by RizzoliFrom Library Journal:
Noted British art critic Denys Sutton has produced a praiseworthy monograph on the enigmatic but illustrious master. Degas fits no category, though he exhibited with the Impressionists, whose color and movement he embraced even while deploring the term itself. Among such giants as Monet and Renoir, Degas holds his own. He did not abandon the linear tradition exemplified by Ingres but progressed from perceptive family portraits and historical pictures to the real world of the racetrack, the theater, and especially the ballet. This monumental book vividly develops the personality of Degas, and analyzes his work partly through previously unpublished extracts of his correspondence. One hundred superior color reproductions plus 194 black-and-white illustrations and photographs enhance this all-inclusive critique and biography. Highly recommended for all academic art collections and large public libraries. Gloria K. Rensch, formerly with Vigo Cty. P.L., Terre Haute, Ind.
