Edgar Degas’s monotypes illustrate how an artist’s infatuation with a specific process can fundamentally reshape his artistic vision and practice. Join us to see his meticulously crafted scenes of everyday life give way to an improvisational process of conjuring powerfully modern images from ink-covered metal plates.

Join us for lively conversations and engaging activities, facilitated by Museum educators, that offer insightful and unusual ways to engage with MoMA’s collection and special exhibitions.

Gallery Sessions are free for members and Museum admission ticket holders. No registration is required. Groups meet in the Marron Atrium, Floor 2.

FM headsets for sound amplification are available for all talks.
