About the Lecture:

Speaker: Timothy J. Standring, Gates Foundation Curator of Painting and & Sculpture, Denver Art Museum

Edgar Degas’s works defy categorization. Being neither a Realist nor an Impressionist, but a hybrid of sorts, he worked fearlessly, passionately, and determinedly in a vast array of media, from etchings and monotypes, to pastels and photography. Timothy Standring’s anecdote-filled talk—based on research undertaken in museums and libraries across Europe and North America—is the perfect introduction to this late 19th-century French artist. This year marks the centenary of his Degas’s death, which is being celebrated with exhibitions worldwide.
