127 pages : illustrations (some color) ; 26 cm
This volume is a catalog published in conjunction with a 2005 exhibition organized by the Harvard University Art Museums. Co-author Cohn offers a historical account of the unusually deep collection of Degas's works at the Fogg (it's one of the most important in the United States); and art historian Boggs writes of her experiences as a student (beginning in 1944) with Paul J. Sachs, Degas's champion at the Fogg and the man who inspired her own and many others' scholarship. The catalog contains 53 color and 41 b&w plates showcasing the museum's paintings, drawings, prints, photographs, and sculptures.
