  1. See Paris through Degas eyes, as Degas roams the city and zooms in on the details that make Parisian lives of his time, including dancers and horses at racetracks, women ironing, and customers trying on hats, all painted with a bit of a blur that was characteristic of Degas.


  2. Text 4 starsIllustrations 4 starsPicture book about Edgar Degas Describes his philosophy of art and shows the inspiration for some of his paintings, then you turn the page and see a reprint of the actual painting A list of those paintings is described further in the back of the book, along with a short bio of Degas The first and last pages of text are not as strong as the rest of the book In the illustrations, I m a bit disappointed at the flatness of the balconies on the buildings, a quaint arc [...]


  3. The concept of the book is that Paris is changing and that Degas, as an artist, wanted to change with the times So he went out walking the streets of Paris, examining its people and their activities The explanation is in words and watercolor and ink illustrations, but when you turn the page, you see Degas actual painting The writing was lovely, except for the first and last page The world was changing Paris was alive What, exactly, does this mean Then, on the next to last page was my favorite pa [...]



  4. Succinct distillation of Degas s philosophy of art Slice of life plus reproductions of some of his work Lyrical narrative and loose, attractive illustrations Excellent.


  5. Framed as a day in which Degas walks through the city people watching, this book cleverly sets up context for several of his paintings The works are included in the story and the end notes get the specifics of his life and work down The informational text could definitely fit any non fiction collection but it works as a story read aloud since the text is light Possibly sense of sight storytime


  6. Degas the artist likes to observe what is happening day to day in Paris He sees scenes and likes to imagine what people are doing and thinking He paints what he imagines The book shows the scenes of life in Paris that Degas sees as he goes about his day Then you turn the page and see how Degas painted it In the back of the book is a brief biography of Degas and a list of all of the paintings featured within Nice little story to introduce young readers to Degas.


  7. This is a wonderful book to explore the work and life of Edgar Degas The illustrations are wonderful and nicely transition to actual Degas works This definitely would be a great book for a kindergartener The details are so visually interesting and can spark a lot of discussion.


  8. Very introduction to the art of Degas for both kids and open minded adults in a sophisticated way The created illustrations complement the reproductions of Degas s works very well.
