Degas, artiste français, est reconnu pour ses toiles, sculptures, gravures et dessins. Sa longue carrière fut très productive, même lorsqu'il parvint à un âge avancé. On le considère comme étant l'un des fondateurs de l'Impressionnisme, caractérisé par son travail autour du thème de la danse. En effet, près de la moitié de ses oeuvres représente des danseuses, telles que La Leçon de danse, ou la sculpture La Petite Danseuse de quatorze ans. Elles expriment son talent en matière de description du mouvement, tout comme son choix de représenter, certes plus rarement, des courses de chevaux et des

Degas : a dialogue of difference by Werner Hofmann( Book )
2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 576 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Here is a comprehensive overview of the pioneering work of Edgar Degas. Packed with over 200 illustrations, it explores the pictorial world of the man whose formal innovations, commitment to realism and the exploration of both the light and dark sides of contemporary society foreshadowed the art of the 20th century, with Hofmann bringing his own surprising new insights to many of Degas's best-known works. Degas regularly took part in the Impressionists' group exhibitions but followed his own path from the start. In contrast to the sense of harmony pursued by his fellow painters, he produced images of the social world, charged with tension. He depicted the brittle nature of bourgeois life and relationships, and explored the marginal areas of society, where his artistic gaze fell predominantly upon female subjects: washerwomen and seamstresses, dancers and prostitutes. Degas portrayed these women at work and at rest, with others and alone, with a striking focus on the female body in all its forms: decorated, desired, bought and sold, and--only occasionally--liberated. This interest in human isolation and alienation led to formal experiments in which Degas broke with the strict rules of central perspective to create a sense of unbalance and unease. Werner Hofmann's penetrating analysis is interspersed with insights into Degas's bourgeois background, and his artistic trajectory is placed within the context of the major currents of 19th-century art, with David, Ingres, Delacroix, Courbet and the Impressionists among the key points of reference. In this way, we see not only the traditions that influenced him but also his striking individuality and spirit of innovation, which forged a new artistic path into the 20th century

Edgar Degas : Waiting by Richard Thomson( Book )
8 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 433 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Edgar Degas was one of the great pioneers of modern art, and the J. Paul Getty and Norton Simon museums are fortunate to own jointly one of his finest pastels, Waiting (L'Attente), which he made sometime between 1880 and 1882, about midway in his career. In this fascinating monograph, author Richard Thomson explores this brilliant work in detail, revealing both the intricacies of its composition and the source of the emotional pull it immediately exerts upon the viewer. For Waiting is, indeed, an extraordinary object both in its craftsmanship and color and, perhaps most especially, in its aura of ambiguity and even mystery
