Edgar Degas : Dance Like a Butterfly, Paperback / softback Book

Edgar Degas : Dance Like a Butterfly Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


Now available in paperback, this exploration of Degas' ballet paintings shows young readers how the Impressionist master used light and color to capture dancers in motion. Degas spent years studying the delicate movements and crystalline precision of ballerinas.

His paintings were praised not only for their astonishing detail and emotion, but also for their meticulous depictions of ballet poses and dance steps. Featuring gorgeous reproductions of some of the artist's most famous paintings and sketches, this accessible and lively introduction to Degas' ballet paintings examines the Impressionist techniques that bring his dancers to life.
