Summary note
These two painters with a difference of thirty years crossed in time, naturally feeling the call to observe and reflect on their immediate world, each immersed in his own mind, which had the power to attract your feeling and inspiration in a special way. The bourgeois identifies their origin. Degas is a prominent figure in French art, the most faithful admirer of Ingres and Delacroix, that in symbolist tendencies find himself knew and other works by projecting a sensual and captivating as Impressionist painter. Born in Paris in 1834, was the son of a wealthy banker Neapolitan, Auguste de Gas. Icaza was born in Mexico City in 1866, whose ancestors were part of the more Mexican aristocracy, signed the Declaration of Independence, linked directly to the Conservative Party, participated in politics, education and the economy booming Porfiriato. And so, between tequila and champagne, among the horses of the racecourse and the rodeos, between cockfighting and cabaret evenings the book observes the manners and life of the two worlds.
