Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Published in conjunction with the winter 1998-99 Metropolitan Museum of Art exhibition of the same name, this volume includes 40 tritones, 63 duotones, and three color photographs of fine quality. Five essays explore topics including the psychological connection between events in the aging artist's life and his decision to take up the camera; the interplay between painting, posing, theatrical direction, and photography in his work; and Guillaume Tasset and his daughter Delphine, from whom Degas sought photographic supplies and services. 10.5x11". Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
Patrick O'Connor
[B]rings a new slant on Degas's work and personality...This is a scholarly book, but also a beautiful object.
