Exhibition at the MoMA, New York, 26 March - 24 July 2016

Edgar Degas is best known as a chronicler of the ballet, yet his work in monotype reveals his restless experimentation. In the mid-1870s, Degas was introduced to the monotype process and became captivated by its potential. He embraced it with enthusiasm, taking the medium to radical ends. He expanded the possibilities of drawing and invented new means for new subjects, from dancers in motion to the radiance of electric light, from women in intimate settings to meteorological effects in nature.
This exhibition catalogue presents approximately 120 monotypes and some 60 related works in other mediums. Texts by curators, scholars, and conservators explore the creative potency of Degas's rarely seen monotypes and highlight their impact on his wider practice.
