Michelle Foa, Associate Professor of Art History at Tulane University, introduces Edgar Degas: Multi-Media Artist in the Age of Impressionism. Timed with the 150th anniversary of the first Impressionist exhibition in Paris in 1874, this exhibition examines the innovative realm of Degas's works on paper, in which pastels, drawings, photographs, and prints demonstrate his relentless pursuit of material and technical innovation. Consisting of works from the Clark’s permanent collection and exclusive loans, Edgar Degas: Multi-Media Artist in the Age of Impressionism sheds valuable light on Degas’s experimental modes of making, the circle of artists with whom he surrounded himself, and his significant role in shaping the Impressionist shows.

Free. Accessible seats available; for information, call 413 458 0524.
