Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Poet, essayist, and member of the French Academy, Paul Valery was, through marriage, brought into a household suffused with the presence and works of a number of outstanding nineteenth-century French painters. This volume . . . sets down Valery's impressions, recollections and ruminations on the artists, their work, and the nature of the creative act. It should be of special interest to art lovers. . . . The first half of the book is devoted to the painter Edgar Degas, concerning whom it is a precious source of information."--Francis Steegmuller, The New York Times Book Review
