If Paris was the "bank, boulevard, and brothel" of Europe, then Degas was its most affectionate documentarian. He moved easily between the elegant sidewalks of the Champs-Elysees and the city's glamorous salons to its working class bars and seedy bordellos. As readers turn the pages of this collection they will feel as if they are looking into Degas' private sketchbook. The sketches in this book possess the quality of immediacy and simplicity that mark his best work, including drawings of women bathing and dressing or posing as studies for his finished portraits. These reproductions display the artist's bold composition and draftsmanship. Printed on high-quality stock, this volume has the look and feel of an artist's own sketchbook, making it the perfect keepsake for collectors of fine art, erotica, and fans of Degas in general.
