RRP  $30.00 $28.75

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 sundappled 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.
