Degas: a passion for perfection

(Tuesday) (Sunday)

The Fitzwilliam Museum will mark the centenary of Degas’s death with an exhibition that will exhibit its holdings of works by the artist – the most extensive and representative in the UK.

Consisting of paintings, drawings, pastels, etchings, monotypes and sculpture in bronze and wax, the Fitzwilliam’s collection will be complemented by a group of drawings from King’s College Cambridge, bequeathed to the College in 1946 by the economist John Maynard Keynes, who famously persuaded the UK Treasury to allocate funds for the National Gallery to make a number of key acquisitions at the artist’s posthumous sale in Paris in 1918. There will be a large number of highly significant national and international loans, many from private collections and exhibited here for the first time. The exhibition will travel to Denver Art Museum, our partnering institution, from February to May 2018.
