One of the masters of modern art in the late nineteenth century, Edgar Degas (1834–1917) achieved worldwide recognition with his perceptive analysis of movement and innovative compositions of dancers, milliners, laundresses, and other figures in natural poses.
The illustrations in this coloring book, adapted from 30 of his finest paintings, invite would-be artists of all ages to apply their own colors to A Woman with Chrysanthemums, Dancer Resting, The Bellelli Family, The Procession (At the Race Course), Women Combing Their Hair, as well as: Dance School; The Cotton Market, New Orleans; The Rehearsal; The Absinthe Drinker; Women in Front of a Café; Before the Exam (The Dancing Class); The Millinery Shop; The Tub; Six Friends of the Artist; The Dance Foyer at the Opera; Pouting; Diego Martelli; Portrait of Thérèse De Gas; Hortense Valinçon as a Child; and 11 of the great Impressionist's other works.
Colorists can either apply their own hues to each picture or use illustrations of the original paintings — shown on the covers — as a guide.
