The Uncontested Master
Born in Paris in 1834, Edgar Degas's art was considered radical in his adoption of modern subject matter and he became a key figure in the evolution of modern art. Degas: The Uncontested Master covers his work from the 1870s until his death in 1917. It illustrates his painting, sculpture, printing, pastels, monotypes, and photography, and the artist's favorite subjects: the ballet, the opera, the racetrack, women in bordellos and bathing, milliners and laundresses. Essays discuss Degas's role in organizing the first Impressionist exhibitions, and present a detailed biography with facts never before published.
