"Degas & America: The Early Collectors"
2001-03-04 until 2001-05-27
High Museum
Atlanta, GA, USA

Degas & America: The Early Collectors is the first museum exhibition to explore the history of America's love affair with Edgar Degas' art. The show includes 81 works by the famed French Impressionist that were acquired in America by leading collectors and museums at the turn of the 20th century.

Because American collectors embraced Degas' work in all media - oils, pastels, drawings, prints and sculpture - and from all periods of his career, the exhibition offers a first-rate survey of his work. His early academic drawings, his engaging portraits and his celebrated images of the ballet, horseracing and of the human figure are all represented in this landmark exhibition.

Degas & America will travel to The Minneapolis Institute of Arts, where it will be shown June 16 - September 9, 2001. The show is not only the first survey of Degas' work to be presented in either the Southeast or Minneapolis, but it is also the largest Degas exhibition ever mounted in the Southeast.

Adult and Family audio tours are available for this show and are included in the price of admission.

This exhibition is organized by the High Museum of Art, Atlanta in collaboration with The Minneapolis Institute of Arts.
