Objektbeschreibung
Paul Valéry
Degas, Danse, Dessin. Paris, A. Vollard 1936.

"A poetic, fragmentary image of the painter's personality and his art, and a kind of meditation on the creative process." (Ausst.-Kat. Musée d'Orsay 2017)

1 von 305 numerierten Exemplaren auf Vélin de Rives. - "In order to reproduce these compositions of Degas, I had to find an artist capable of fathoming the sensitiveness of his drawing, the subtlety of his tone. I turned to Maurice Potin, who accomplished wonders. He spared neither time nor trouble. To reproduce a certain monotype, even in black, as many as three copper plates had to be engraved." (A. Vollard in Johnson S. 78)
