Published to accompany an exhibition highlighting the more than sixty Degas drawings, paintings, and sculptures at the Clark Art Institute, Degas in the Clark Collection offers detailed descriptions of each work as well as essays on Degas’s role as a classicist among Impressionists and as one of the great printmakers of the nineteenth century. Institute founder Robert Sterling Clark first became acquainted with Degas’s work during his ten years living in Paris, and the collection reflects his preference for works from the earlier phases of Degas’s career—“the immediate period when he had just shed Ingres’s influence,” according to Clark.
