Abstract:

"Art in the Making: Degas presents an overview of Degas's working practices and techniques, in the context of his life and artistic milieu. A biographical sketch provides an account of the artist's family, his travels and his associates, and considers his place in the Impressionist movement. This is followed by an extensive summary of Degas's working methods and materials, showing how interdependent they were, and drawing on technical studies and documentary evidence. Sections are devoted to drawing, oil painting, pastels, printmaking, sculpture and framing, highlighting Degas's use of unconventional and mixed media." "The essays are followed by full catalogue entries on fourteen of Degas's paintings and sketches, eleven of them in the Gallery's permanent collection."--Jacket.
