Synopsis

Degas and the Dance The Painter and the Petits Rats, Perfecting Their Art by Susan Goldman Rubin

Edgar Degas: The Painter of Dancers is the definitive picture-book biography of this artist. Meticulously researched and fully vetted by both the American Federation of Arts and the School of American Ballet, the text by Susan Goldman Rubin offers remarkable insight into the life of Degas, as well as the lives of the young dancers at the Paris Opera who Degas sketched and painted. Illustrated with more than thirty of Degas' original artworks in full color, and featuring a cover note from Peter Martins of the School of American Ballet, this biography of one of the world's greatest artists truly offers young readers an invitation to the dance.
