It was very exciting to find a book featuring pastels by Degas. Pastels are on an increase in popularity, but were not a popular medium in the time of Degas’s life. He was an innovator in all his mediums, pastels included. His many beautiful paintings using pastels are all together in this book. The only downside is that the author did not seem to have much respect for pastels, but, “tant pis”, the photos provide the feast!.

Love it!

The cover caught my attention. While I am familiar with Degas’ work, I had not singled out his pastels. But I have been loving every page I have seen so far. The cover art is breathtaking with its stage light glowing from below. Interior art is reproduced well and flows nicely with commentary. Degas used very dynamic angles in many of his compositions which adds interest and drama visually. Easy to understand why impressionists had a hard time being acknowledged in their day and why they continue to look fresh to us today.
