Edgar Degas (1834–1917) was one of the first artists collected by the American industrialist, philanthropist, and art collector Norton Simon (1907–1993). Over the course of nearly three decades of art acquisition, Simon purchased more than a hundred works by Degas, including paintings, bronzes, and pastels. This comprehensive and beautiful collections catalogue of the artworks by Degas now housed in the Norton Simon Museum in Pasadena, California, offers not only a fascinating insight into the evolution of Simon's extensive and remarkable collection of pieces by the French impressionist, but also a descriptive and informative account of the current collection prepared by leading Degas scholars.

Sara Campbell is a senior curator at the Norton Simon Museum. Richard Kendall is curator at large at the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute in Williamstown, Massachusetts, and the author of Degas: Beyond Impressionism, Degas and the Little Dancer, and Degas Landscapes. Daphne Barbour and Shelley Sturman are object conservators at the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.

‘The wealth of technical information on the modèles, the discussion of paintings less studied in critical literature on Degas, and the superb quality of the photography make this book not only a delight to read, but also an important contribution to Degas studies generally.’

‘Each of Kendall’s catalogue entries reads like a mini-monograph combining iconographical overviews with detailed analysis topped up with numerous fresh insights so that for anyone with an interest in Degas this becomes an indispensable publication…The overall result is a landmark publication that will benefit Degas scholarship enormously.’
