The Burrell Collection holds one of the greatest collections of Degas’s works in the world. Rarely seen in public, this exhibition marks the first time the group of 20 pastels has been shown outside of Scotland, since they were acquired. One of the greatest artistic innovators of his age, Degas found new ways of depicting modern Parisian life; pursuing a vision distinct from that of his fellow Impressionists. He also relentlessly experimented with materials, particularly pastel that he came to prefer over oil paint. Coinciding with the centenary of Degas’s death, and including complementary works from the National Gallery Collection, the exhibition offers unique insight into the practices and preoccupations of a complex and intensely private artist. Exhibition organised by the National Gallery in collaboration with the Burrell Collection, Glasgow.

What a delightful insight into both men; the artist and the collector. Kudos to the National Gallery as well as Mr. Domercq.

Thank you for bringing these to people who would otherwise not have access. Ordinarily I enjoy these presentations but this one not as much. The other presentations show the artwork first, show closer images of it, talk about the art for at least a few minutes and show more pictures of the art; then intersperse bits of info about the man. That order makes for a more enticing presentation. Please don't show me pictures of the man first. There's 4 billion men on the planet and a few hundred thousand who all claim to be great artists -- I need a reason to be interested in this man and what he looked like and where he went to school and so on. Maybe I'm being too picky and impatient to see the art, I know it took a lot of work to make this video. Thank you for all of them, enjoyed the others quite a bit and learned a lot.
