This stunning exhibition displays pastel artworks of four impressionism artists: Edgar Degas, Eva Gonzalès, Mary Cassatt and Berthe Morisot. Their subjects are scenes from 19th century France such as ballerinas portrayed by Degas and portraits of women in everyday moments depicted by Gonzales, Cassatt and Morisot.
