DEGAS LANDSCAPES. Richard Kendall. Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, 1994. Published 1993. Organized in association with Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. Published in association with Yale University Press, New Haven. 322 pp. with 242 ills. (160 col.). 30 x 26 cm. LC 93-11554 ISBN 0300058373 In English.
An illuminating study of the largely overlooked significance of the landscape as a theme in Degas's oeuvre, this scholarly catalogue documents an exhibition of 78 prints, drawings and paintings executed from 1856 to 1900 by the celebrated French artist (1834-1917), the selection encompassing atmospheric, almost abstract studies of rural vistas as well as depictions of equestrian scenes, bathers and other subjects that incorporate landscape elements. Accompanied by illustrations of the exhibited works and of scores of related pieces, the extensive nine-part text thoroughly examines Degas's landscapes in the context of his artistic evolution, tracing his career-long involvement with the genre from sketches created during his early sojourn in Italy through the innovative color monotypes selected by the artist in 1892 for his only personal exhibition to the series of townscapes he produced at Saint-Valery-sur-Somme in the late 1890s.
