Looking Into Degas: Uneasy Images of Women and Modern Life

by Eunice Lipton

This book is about the realist paintings. They are the ones that evoke modern Paris--the streets and cafes, the singers and ballet dancers, the laundresses and millineers. These are the paintings that are both nostalgic and modern. They long for a privileged past in the same instant that they reject its values; they lurch merrily, sometimes nastily, into modern Paris

They long for a privileged past in the same instant that they reject its values; they lurch merrily, sometimes nastily, into modern Paris at the very moment that they longingly nod in the direction of tradition..
