Still, the book is full of thought-provoking insights and revelations. Among the most startling is evidence that Degas shaped the head of the Little Dancer to echo phrenological theories of his day: The jutting chin that seems so adorable now may have been a trait that 19th-century viewers would have associated with degeneracy or criminality, the book suggests. Perhaps Degas was trying to pare open viewers’ eyes to the poverty and prejudice that pushed some “little rats” into prostitution. “To unsettle so as to stimulate thought,” Laurens reflects, “to make art that was critical and served truth, though truth might be cruel, such were the aims of Edgar Degas, in his extreme modernity.” Laurens herself arguably displays similar ambition in this book, which acknowledges cruel truths, displays critical virtuosity and stimulates thought with observations that can be both intriguing and unsettling.
