Discover a radical side of Edgar Degas in this exhibition exploring the artist’s restless experimentation. With more than 120 rarely seen monotypes—along with related paintings, drawings, pastels, sketchbooks and prints—the exhibition shows Degas at his most modern, capturing the spirit of urban life and boldly engaging the possibilities of abstraction.
Edgar Degas: A Strange New Beauty surveys his technical innovations and range of subjects, from dancers in motion to the radiance of electric light, from women in intimate settings to meteorological effects in nature. Don’t miss this once-in-a-lifetime chance to experience these extraordinary works.
