Presented by independent scholar Richard Kendall

Edgar Degas was a leading Impressionist in the 1870s and 1880s, continuing to work adventurously for more than 20 years. In this talk held in conjunction with the exhibition Degas: A New Vision, Richard Kendall explores Degas’s later creativity, which fascinated and influenced Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, and other artists of their generation.
