Edgar Degas: The Private Impressionist – Works on Paper by the Artist and His Circle
This special exhibition provides a rare look at over 100 original works on paper by the pioneering artist and his circle of friends. From the private collection of curator Robert Flynn Johnson and organized by Landau Traveling Exhibitions, Los Angeles, CA in association with Denenberg Fine Arts, West Hollywood, CA., Edgar Degas: The Private Impressionist offers unique insights into Degas’ inner world. Johnson’s collection includes more than 50 works by Degas himself along with a collection of drawings, prints, photographs, and monotypes created by Degas’s inner circle of artists. Pieces offering a fascinating look at the artist’s life and time include works by Mary Cassatt, Édouard Manet, Jean Leon Gerome, Alfred Stevens, Camille Pissarro, and Paul Cézanne to name a few.
