Born in 1834 into a rich Franco-Italian banking family with branches in Paris, Naples and New Orleans, Degas was never short of money and never doubted his vocation as a painter, in which his family encouraged him. Shy and awkward--he gave up painting his own face at thirty-one. It was everyone else's that fascinated him. A must-have book for art lovers and particularly fans of Edgar Degas.
