"Some of Edgar Degas's most famous works of art are scenes of Paris and the people who worked and lived there. Degas loved painting, drawing and making pastel pictures of the racetrack, washerwomen, and cafe singers."
This biography introduces Edgar Degas in a manner that is fun and interesting to young children. The author’s premise is that if children can think of artists as real people, then the world of art will open up to them.
Through his own illustrations and a clever story line, along with reproductions of the artists’ works, the author conveys a wealth of information about Edgar Degas, his time, and his art. Great for reading aloud and discussion. Paperback, 32 pages. Ages 4 and up.
