It is rare to find more than one pastel of a dancer by Edgar Degas in a single museum and exceptional to discover several such works outside institutions in Paris or New York. Yet the Cincinnati Art Museum owns no less than five pictures of ballerinas by Degas. Jill DeVonyar and Richard Kendall will discuss Cincinnati’s rich trove of ballet scenes, exploring their distinctive subjects and their relationship to the dance world of Paris in Degas’s era
Jill DeVonyar and Richard Kendall have written widely on Degas and their 2002 book, Degas and the Dance, is now regarded as a standard source for dance historians, as well as admirers of the artist’s drawings, pastels, paintings and sculptures. Richard Kendall is Curator at Large at the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute, and Jill DeVonyar is an independent curator and former ballet instructor.
