Talk: Degas and the Nude
by George Shackelford from the Kimbell Art Museum


Friday, April 20, 2018, 6pm
Lower level Hamilton Building, Sharp Auditorium
Open to the public
Free, no reservations required

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 for art making.  In drawings, paintings, pastels, prints, sculpture--even in 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; he will share more than 30 years of his own obsession with the artist in his lecture on Degas and the nude form.
