The exhibition Degas’ Method focuses on some of the fundamental challenges with which the French painter Edgar Degas (1834-1917) engaged, ranging across motifs and techniques and independent of chronology. This summer’s exhibition presents an outstanding array of works borrowed from other international museums and collections. Together they present Degas’s artistic vision in drawing, painting and sculpture. Degas is one of the absolute masters of French art and is active in the same period which sees the emergence of Impressionism: his work stands today as a document of one of the most radical artists of the modern age.
Degas’ Method also contains results of research obtained with the aid of the most modern conservation technological methods. In collaboration with the National Gallery of Art, Washington and CATS – the Centre for Art Technological Studies and Conservation at Statens Museum for Kunst (The National Gallery of Denmark) the Glyptotek has undertaken technical analysis of Degas’s work processes. How did he work? And in what way is Degas original?
