The exhibition catalogue for this major retrospective on Edgar Degas generously illustrates the artist’s expanse of themes: his historical paintings, portraits, and landscapes from the 1860s; the following decade when he explored beaches, cafés, brothels, and dance; the 1880s, which includes his focus on milliners, women ironing, and grooming; along with his final years, which continued many of these motifs. In addition, the artist’s broad and deft use of media—such as sculpture and photography—are showcased. Scholarship on Degas’s long and wide-ranging career makes clear his impact on modern and contemporary art.
