Degas Dancersby Richard Kendall
During more than forty years of his working life, Edgar Degas made hundreds of drawings, pastels, prints, paintings, and sculptures of the ballet, the variety and subtlety of which has often been greatly underestimated.Searching beyond the splendor and enchantment of the stage, Degas turned to the backstage world, addressing the exertion of every day routine and the ill-lit corridors which led to fleeting moments of enchantment on stage.The artist's lifelong fascination for this world conveys the vitality and the fragile glamor of the modern theater. This fascinating reign of duality is brilliantly conveyed through an enlightening text by one of today's leading Degas specialists, Richard Kendall.
