Biographic Degas

$14.95

 

The Biographic series presents an entirely new way of looking at the lives of the world’s greatest thinkers and creatives.  It takes the 50 defining facts, dates, thoughts, habits and achievements of each subject, and uses infographics to convey all of them in vivid snapshots.

Many people know that Edgar Degas (1834-1917) was a French artist and leading light of Impressionism, whose paintings brilliantly capture the movement of ballet dancers.  What, perhaps, they don’t know is that by mid-twenties he had made over 700 copies of other artists’ works; that he produced 1,500 studies of ballet dancers, one of which sold for over £17 million; and that he amassed a private collection of more than 8,000 pieces of art.  Biographic: Degas presents an instant impression of his life and work, with an array of irresistible facts and figures converted into infographics to reveal the artist behind the pictures.
