Nov. 12, 2012 - PRLog -- Imagine discovering everything about one of the World's most famous artists captured in one manageable format. 'Edgar Degas: The Innovative Impressionist' provides all the information you need without having to reference lots of different books to research every aspect of his life and work. It's an invaluable reference for students, art lovers and general interest, for academic or leisure purposes.

Edgar Degas was a painter, poet and sculptor. A lonely and often difficult man to befriend. His working life was  torn between the possibilities of capturing real moments in time and his loyalties to the classical tradition. Although classically trained Degas was influenced by modern technology.  He interpreted much of his work adopting the impressionist ideology of the time which challenged traditional replication.

Written by Emma Kay, 'Edgar Degas: The Innovative Impressionist' exposes some of the lesser known aspects of Degas as a collector of Japanese art and his obsession with painting silk fans. It reveals a man often criticised wrongly for portraying women negatively. Rather he demonstrates an overriding respect and fascination for women through his relationships and work.

The illustrated ebook is one of the titles in Collca's 'BiteSize Biography' series and is available for popular ereaders such as the Kindle, Kobo, Nook and Apple’s iBooks on the iPad, iPhone and iPod.
