Degas and Modern Life

Thursday14th September 2017

Lecturer: Dr Kathy McLauchlan

Many stories are told about Degas: that he was a misogynist (the evidence is contradictory); that he was an Impressionist (that depends on how one defines Impressionism). This talk concentrates Degas's images of modern life, including portraits and genre scenes, and compares them with works by contemporaries including Manet, Renoir, Whistler and Monet. The aim will be to unpick the myths from the realities of Degas's work, and to attempt an explanation for the strange, often contradictory nature of his modernity.
