NY: Thames & Hudson, 1976. Hardcover. NF/VG- (Light scuffing back of dj). Green cloth/color-illus. dj. with Mylar cover. 352 pp. 14 color, 202 bw plates. Degas's art as seen in his ingenious pictorial stategies and technical innovations - his use of motifs like the window, the mirrow, and the picutre within the picture; his invention of striking, psychologically compelling compositions, and his creation of a sculptural idiom at once formal and vernacular; his contacts with leading novelists and poets of his time and his efforts to illustrate or draw inspiration from their works.
