Discover the works of French painter and sculptor Edgar Degas, whose obsession with movement led him to produce over 1,500 ballerina images alone. From still lifes to the cabaret, from horse racing to bustling street scenes, Degas left no corner of Parisian entertainment untouched. Resisting categorization, his exploration of physicality inspired, reflected, and ultimately transcended the Impressionist movement.
Each of the books published in Taschen’s Basic Art series features a detailed chronological summary of the artist’s life and works, their cultural influence and historical significance, a concise biography and approximately 100 illustrations with explanatory captions.
