Many people know that Edgar Degas (1834–1917) was a French artist and leading light of Impressionism, whose paintings brilliantly capture the movement of ballet dancers. What, perhaps, they don’t know is that by his mid-twenties he had made over 700 copies of other artists’ works; that he produced 1,500 studies of ballet dancers; and that, although Degas exhibited only one sculpture in his lifetime, 150 wax figures were found in his studio after his death. This book presents an instant impression of his life and work, with an array of irresistible facts and figures converted into infographics to reveal the artist behind the pictures.

“The Biographic Series is an exciting new collection of biographies about some of the world’s greatest thinkers, writers, artists and cultural innovators. Whilst each book could be read cover to cover, readers are more likely to randomly select pages, stopping and pausing to find out more about the subject . . . The infographics are visually appealing and entertaining, perhaps reinvigorating an interest in the subject . . .The legacy of artists, such as Monet and Van Gogh are particularly well documented in their Biographic.” —Armadillo magazine
