He has enormous popularity as the foremost artist of the dance - with more than half his vast body of paintings, pastels, drawings and sculptures devoted to the on- and off-stage activities of ballerinas - and this catalogue, accompanying an exhibition, illuminates the theme in its historical context.

Degas and the Dance by Jill DeVonyar and Richard Kendall covers everything seen previously on Degas, as well as an enormous amount of the artist's creations of which we were unaware. Mainly, his work centered on the dancers of the Paris Opera. The book was produced in conjunction with a traveling exhibition at the Detroit Institute of Arts (October 2002 to January 2003) and the Philadelphia Museum of Art (February 2003 to May 2003)

Degas focused on the artifice of the performance and the harsh daily life of the dancer. Drawing on his background as a newspaper illustrator, Forain's vignettes focus on backstage flirtations between social unequals, especially their exploitative aspects.

Among the supreme masterpieces of 19th-century art are Edgar Degas's dramatic, incisive, and often brilliantly colored pictures of the ballet. Yet despite his enormous popularity as the foremost artist of the dancewith more than half his vast body of paintings, pastels, drawings, and sculptures devoted to the on- and off-stage activities of ballerinasthis is the first book to illuminate the theme in its historical context. This authoritative volume presents much new material about Degas as an artist and his relationship with the ballet of his day. Far more knowledgeable about the training and technique of dancers than has previously been realized, Degas is shown responding to numerous ballet productions at the Paris Opéra, to the shadowy life of the wings, and to the daily routines of the classroom. Originally published to accompany an acclaimed exhibition at the Detroit Institute of Arts and the Philadelphia Museum of Art , this lavish, richly illustrated volume should fascinate a wide audience of art- and dance-lovers.
Reviews about Degas and the Dance (6):
Bluecliff
Published in 2002 and now out of print this is an outstanding work on Degas' famous images of the dance. Highly recommended.

Great gift

This book has neither fulfilled my expectations on Degas nor provided his most distinguished paintings. The dance theme is not properly supported with the paintings. Additionally the quality of colour separations is very poor. I have also found the page designs unsatisfactory. A typical rough American approach to European Art.

I see the other reviewer has reviewed AMAZON's delivery service and not the actual book... Which is a pity. Because the book is truly gorgeous and an amazing source of knowledge to those who's interested in Degas. It has an incredible amount of picture documentation, as well as tons of interesting written material. It shows in particular how Degas to some extent understood the world of ballet so well he was able to correct the petite ballet rats if they showed an imperfect technique...

It also displays much interesting info about the two old Parisian opera houses Rue Peletier (destroyed in a fire) and Palais Garnier (still existing and in use).

And last, but not least, it shows Degas's various motifs, techiques and ideas. I love this book most of all the arts book I have, and though sligthly expensive I found it to be worth every penny.

The copy I saw didn't show evidence of poor color separations, nothing that I could detect at any rate...I especially appreciated the degree of attention paid to Degas' drawings...some publishers seem to think that finished paintings are the only things worth reproducing in color. Next paycheck, I'm buying this one! I also thought that the reviewer's crack about a typically rough American approach was uncalled for (and I'm not an American). Ever hear, for example, of Yale University Press?

I always wondered how Degas created his many ballet images. I knew he couldn't drag an easel, canvas/paper, paints and pastels to a box seat at the theater. So how did he do it?

Well, this FAB book explains wonderfully! His whole life and times are explained. Very well written, not too scholarly, but very readable. I earned art degrees but dislike books with fancy words and not saying much. This offers lots of good content!

GORGEOUS images. Delightful.

I borrowed this big book from library. Some of the images are not near the text (cos they are described also in other chapters). EVERY single time I looked for that other image, someone had torn it out! So I had to buy the book!

Great investment. Highly recommended if you are also curious about Degas life and times. And if you want to know more about his subjects. And gorgeous images!! Lots of BIG images. Yummy details. Degas fans will enjoy it. I sure do!!
