MAPPING DEGAS: REAL SPACES, SYMBOLIC SPACES AND INVENTED SPACES IN THE LIFE AND WORK OF EDGAR DEGAS (1834-1917). Roberta Crisci-Richardson. Cambridge Scholars Publishing, Newcastle upon Tyne, 2015. 394 pp. with 46 ills. 22 x 16 cm. ISBN 9781443874496 In English.
Publisher's description: The New Art History and the Impressionist canon seem to have successfully claimed Edgar Degas as a misogynist, rabid nationalist and misanthrope whose art was both masterly and experimental. By analysing Degas's approach to space and his self-fashioning attitude towards identity within the ambiguities of the political and artistic culture of nineteenth-century France, this book questions the characterisation of Degas as a right-wing Frenchman and artist, and will change the way in which Degas is thought about today.
