Held on the 8th Jun 2019
Image credit: Edgar Degas, Self Portrait with Evariste de Valernes, 1865.
With exclusive access to view rare and diverse works, Degas: Passion for Perfection tells the fascinating story of Degas’ pursuit for perfection through both experimentation with new techniques and lessons learnt from studying the past masters.
Following the film’s opening screening, Chris Arneaud-Clarke from the University of Tasmania will look at the two figures in Waiting (1880 – 1882); a work in pastel on paper highlighting Degas’ close interest in what is today called “body language”.
