Edgar Degas (1834-1917) was one of the outstanding draughtsmen of the 19th century; for him drawing was not only a central tenet of his art but was essential to his existence. In Edgar Degas: Drawings and Pastels, Christopher Lloyd examines the artist's drawings and pastels, traces the development of his style, and explores his biography, including his complicated relationship with the Impressionists.The artist's entire career is covered, from his early days copying the Old Masters through 1912, when failing eyesight caused him to cease working. Following a broadly chronological approach, Lloyd discusses Degas's images of dancers, nudes, milliners, and the less well-known racehorse and landscape drawings. His extensive research, which included consulting the artist's detailed notebooks, results in a fascinating and comprehensive exposition of Degas's work, at the heart of which are beautiful reproduction of over 200 pencil, black-chalk, pen-and-ink, and charcoal drawings and pastels.

Drawing was central to Cézanne's indefatigable search for solutions to the problems posed by the depiction of reality. Many of his watercolours are equal to his paintings, and he himself made no real distinction between painting and drawing. This book's six chapters are arranged thematically covering the whole range of Cézanne's oeuvre: works after the Old Masters such as Michelangelo and Rubens; his period as one of the Impressionists; his exploration of both portraiture and the human figure, including the magnificent bathers; his interaction with landscape, particularly in his native Provence and the dominating form of Mont Sainte-Victoire; and finally the magisterial still lifes. In the Introduction, as well as throughout the book, Lloyd sets the drawings and watercolours in the context of Cézanne's life and overall artistic development. The result is a greater understanding of the process that led to some of the most absorbing art ever produced.
