Edgar Degas--imagine the opportunity to spend a weekend with this celebrated French artist and learn about his life; to study his work, to observe the use of tools and techniques firsthand, and to witness the joys and rigors of this nineteenth-century master's life. This delightful book offers just such a chance.
The text cleverly weaves insightful information into an amusing weekend excursion. Join Degas on a trip to the milliner's shop and visit with street merchants. Enjoy an evening at the opera and behind-the-scenes look at ballerinas in rehearsal, as well as front row seats for a delightful recital. Then head for the racetracks with the artist as the horses take their mark.
Through the beautiful reproductions of his paintings, sketches and sculpture, and the charming first-person narrative, a child learns about the art of Degas as well as what it means to be an artist.ISBN: 0-8478-1439-4
