From his earliest years as a student artist in the 1850s until his last working days in the early 1900s, Degas was captivated by the nude body as a subject.
In drawings, paintings, pastels, prints, sculpture—even photographs—he explored the representation of the human body with both passion and detachment.
George Shackelford’s first exhibition on Degas’s dancers was held in 1984. The author and deputy director of the Kimbell Art Museum will share more than 30 years of his own obsession with the artist.
