The overriding idea of this exhibition is to show Degas’ original contribution to the monotype, in the hope that his incredible skill and impressive boldness will almost seem contemporary. We have tried to find and present the very best works, guided by artistic quality rather than any desire to make historical corrections or illustrate technicalities. The book has examples of monotypes in two impressions which clearly demonstrate the difference between the first and the second; and it shows black and white monotypes heightened with pastel and other pigments - a stunning large format book.
