The first publication on the personal and professional relationship between Manet and Degas, two giants of nineteenth-century French art
Friends, rivals, and at times antagonists, Édouard Manet and Edgar Degas maintained a pictorial dialogue throughout their lives as they both worked to define the painting of modern urban life. Manet/Degas, the first book to consider their careers in parallel, investigates how their objectives overlapped, diverged, and shaped each other's artistic choices.This lavishly illustrated, in-depth study offers an opportunity to reevaluate some of the most canonical French artworks of the nineteenth century, including Manet's Olympia, Degas's The Absinthe Drinker, and other masterworks.
