Classicism and Experimentation

8 November 2014 – 15 February 2015

Edgar Degas is a towering figure of French 19th-century art. In winter 2014/2015, the Staatliche Kunsthalle Karlsruhe will unveil a monographic exhibition devoted to Degas, featuring samples of his work, spanning 50 years of his career.

Built up around a core of works from the Kunsthalle’s own collection, enriched by numerous international loans, the exhibition will examine both the classical references of his art as well as his technical experimentation.The exhibition will primarily focus on Degas’ portraits and landscapes, but will also include his copies of old masters and his history paintings. The latter reveal a different, largely unknown side to the famous artist.
