In a series of essays, some previously published and some written for this book, major scholars discuss, from various perspectives, Degas's collection and its relation to his own art. Ann Dumas vividly describes Degas's passionate appreciation and compulsive acquisition of works of art, his musings about founding a museum, and the nineteenth-century world of art collecting in which he moved. The extent of Degas's holdings was not recognized until after his death, when the collection came up for auction in Paris in and, in what was called the sale of the century, was widely dispersed. Extensive research has made it possible to "reassemble" that collection in book form.
