Degas, Edgar - Edgar Degas photographe Bibliothèque nationale de France book is new/mint

€ 65,00

Edgar Degas became passionate about photography in the autumn of 1895, when the artist was 61 years old and the eighth and final Impressionist exhibition was a decade behind him. Degas’ photographs are little known even among devotees of the artist’s paintings and pastels, and that’s a real shame. His photographic figure studies, portraits of friends and family, and very interesting (a bit hipster) self-portraits are truly hypnotizing. Most of those photographs were made in the evenings, during dinner parties lit with oil lamps. Until now, fewer than 50 of them survive.
