Degas – Amazing Art or the Artist’s Beliefs?
February 25, 2021 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm EST
While Degas has always been recognized as one of the greatest Impressionist painters, his legacy has been mixed in the decades since his death. Are his paintings to be admired for their originality, grace, painterly brilliance or do we feel that there is a quality of voyeurism in his portraits of women? How do we feel about his intense anti-Semitism and does this alienate us from his masterpieces?
