2004 – Exhibition Sponsor – Degas In bronze
February 29 – May 30, 200
Organized by Joseph S. Czestochowski, International Arts, Memphis, TN from the Collections of the Museu de Arte de Sao Paulo, Brazil
This exhibition featured a complete set of all 73 of Edgar Degas’ sculptures come to life. It is an exploration, like no other, of motion, method and the artist’s mind. It is perhaps the most important body of sculpture produced in the 19th century; it is the vital link between the way sculptors worked before and ever since. The exhibition offers an intimate understanding of how Degas evolved to become an important impressionist artist and a fuller view of his creative genius for representing the figure in motion.
