Edgar Degas was one of the most outstanding draughtsmen of his day and he also produced some of the best figurative art there has ever been.
Christopher Lloyd recounts Degas’s life through his work, beginning from the development of his career copying Old Masters up to 1912 when he stopped working due to failing eyesight. This is a thorough, but also accessible account of a remarkable artist by an accomplished writer and critic. It includes 212 colour images, which can be used for reference due to the gloss paper it is printed on, that trace the development of the artist’s skill and powers throughout his life. It is probably one of the most compete books on Degas available.
