THE PRIVATE COLLECTION OF EDGAR DEGAS. Ann Dumas et al. Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, 1997. Distributed by Harry N. Abrams, Inc., New York. 368 pp. with 434 ills. (203 col.). 32 x 24 cm. LC 97-17882 ISBN 0810965127 In English.
A substantial examination of the extraordinary collection amassed by Degas during the last decades of his life and its significance to an appreciation of his oeuvre, this catalogue presents illustrations of some 300 paintings, drawings and prints selected from the thousands in the personal holdings of the celebrated French Impressionist (1834-1917) at the time of his death, including more than 70 of the artist's own works as well as numerous pieces by such figures as Ingres, Delacroix, Corot, Daumier, Manet, Cezanne, Gauguin, Cassatt and Pissarro. Twelve scholarly essays include discussions of Degas's collecting activities, evaluations of his aesthetic links with the artists whose works he acquired most assiduously, and descriptions of the organization of and critical responses to the series of auctions through which his collection was dispersed in 1918 and 1919.
