About the Event

delivered by Alan Read

EDGAR DEGAS : STUDIED SPONTANEITY

‘No art is less spontaneous than mine’ claimed Degas who, despite being a driving force behind the movement, objected to being classed as an Impressionist. Instead, working primarily in the studio, Alan will demonstrate how Degas’s knowledge of Old Masters was fused with a fascination of modern life: ballet dancers, horse racing and bathing women.
