Edgar Degas has long been associated with ballerinas, but there was much more to his art. As a chronicler of Parisian life, he captured everything from electrically lit cafés to brothels, and he used a novel method—the monotype—to depict them. This session explores the artist’s varied subject matter and printing techniques so we might gain a deeper appreciation for the breadth of his work.

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.
