MoMA Presents Edgar Degas's Monotypes

Written by | Art & Design

March 26–July 24

Invoke the name of Edgar Degas, and one pictures a bevy of painted ballerinas — in motion and at rest, in rehearsal and performance.


This exhibition at MoMA explores Degas’ use of monotypes — featuring 120 of the rarely seen prints along with 50 other related works, including paintings, drawings, pastels and sketches — that show his willingness to embrace a new technique even as he continued to keep his eyes on the dance.
