Edgar Degas at Museum of Modern Art

- "Edgar Degas: A Strange New Beauty" at the Museum of Modern Art introduces us to a new side of the French artist best known for his depictions of ballerinas.

While he is most celebrated for his work as a painter, Degas was a creative genius across techniques, innovating with his printmaking skills specifically using the monotype technique.

Beyond works on paper, the monotypes actually influenced other areas of Degas's work, as seen in his paintings, drawings and pastels on display alongside the prints.

The exhibit opens Saturday, March 26, and runs through Sunday, July 24. It truly offers a multidimensional understanding of an artist we've appreciated for years.
