schema:description"This volume presents documented instances of Spanish painter and sculptor Pablo Picasso's (1881-1973) direct responses to French painter and sculptor Edgar Degas's (1834-1917) works, as well as more conceptual and challenging affinities between their individual bodies of work. Illustrated essays explore the artists' parallel interests in modern urban life, ballet dancers, activities such as bathing and combing the hair, photography, and the challenges of sculpture. The book also provides the first extended analysis of Picasso's engagement with Degas's art in his final years, when he acquired several of the French artist's brothel monotypes and reworked some of them in his own prints."@en
