Home » Travel » Iconic Edgar Degas Artworks – Exhibitions Worldwide

Because of the Coronavirus outbreak, art museums around the world are closed & many exhibitions are not happening.

I have decided not to delete exhibitions that were scheduled during the period of the pandemic & the dates have already passed. Who knows!! Perhaps these exhibitions will be extended to a later date so that we can view them when our lives return to normal… Hopefully that will be soon.

In the meantime, you can still enjoy many art museums online. Press here for details.

Exhibition: Edgar Degas: The Private Impressionist

Where: Muscarelle Museum of Art, Williamsburg, VA, USA
When: February 12 until May 29, 2022

This exhibition is showing a variety of Edgar Degas artworks, including drawings, prints, photographs, monotypes, one sculpture, and a letter. All these works are from a single private collection.

The collection aims to provide Degas’s background and complex personality. The subject matter of these artworks are often quite personal. In addition to three rare self-portraits, the collection includes depictions of close family members, his loyal housekeeper Sabine Neyt, and multiple portraits of artists Édouard Manet and Mary Cassatt.

Edgar Degas: The Private Impressionist  highlights the artist’s interests and individual methods of creating through experimentation and touches upon notable themes of Degas’ oeuvre such as anatomy, horse racing, and ballet. 

Although often aloof to strangers, Degas shared warmth and loyalty with his family as well as with a wide circle of friends, which included some of the greatest writers and artists of that period.  Works by Degas’ circle in this exhibition include Mary Cassatt, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Paul Cézanne, Édouard Manet, Camille Pissarro & others.
