On Degas' Method

Guided tour in English: 6 August at 1.30 p.m.
With characteristic dry humour, Degas presents his artistic endeavours as the result of other people’s hard work and artistic originality, but this is hardly the whole story. From the start Degas enjoyed acknowledgement and respect – and not only in contemporary Paris: posterity too has long established Degas as one of the absolutely critical figures in the story of modern painting.
