By Samantha Friedman. Illustrations by Cristina Pieropan.
What Degas Saw looks at the world through a beloved artist's eyes and provides insight into his creative process. Walking through the streets of Paris with cape and cane, the French artist Edgar Degas observes the world around him, finding inspiration at every turn. From the blurry faces of passersby glimpsed through a bus window to the sun-dappled landscape seen from a moving train, from the hunched profiles of laundresses at work to light-bathed ballerinas on the opera-house stage, the artist—with open eyes and a curious mind—collects impressions of the people and places he sees.
Featuring artwork by Degas, aquatint etching illustrations by Cristina Pieropan, and a story by Samantha Friedman, a curator at MoMA, encourages young readers to carefully observe their surroundings and to create their own art about the people and places around them. 40 pp.; illustrated throughout.
