Degas: Beyond Impressionism
A comprehensive and richly illustrated survey of Degas' late works
A used copy in good condition of the exhibition catalogue for an exhibition exploring Degas' late works at the National Gallery and Art Institute of Chicago.
As one of the leading figures of the Impressionist movement of the 1870s, Degas is celebrated for his work. However, after the last Impressionist exhibition of 1886, the remaining three decades of his life are shrouded in mystery. During these years, Degas produced a remarkable body of drawings, pastels, oil paintings and sculptures which are reproduced in rich detail in this book.
Author, Richard Kendall explores some of the myths about Degas' life, such as his reclusiveness and his alleged blindness as well as the major issues of the artist's later career.
