This illustrated book presents more than seventy paintings, drawings, prints, photographs, and sculptures by Edgar Degas (1834-1917) in Harvard University's collections - one of the most important holdings of the artist's work in the United States. In 1911, the Fogg Art Museum was the first museum to mount a one-man exhibition on Degas and was the only museum to do so during the artist's lifetime. This book examines the history of Degas's reception in the U.S., and in particular the pivotal role that Harvard played.
