Degas scholars Richard Kendall and Jill DeVonyar will enlighten all about Degas's fascination with the world of ballet.  Kendall, considered one of the world's leading scholars on Degas, will lecture with charm and wit why the artist was so obsessed with this subject. DeVonyar, a former Ballerina, will demonstrate the various poses that Degas took great pains to depict throughout the lecture. This lecture anticipates the important exhibition opening of Degas: A Passion for Perfection, opening in February, 2018, at the Denver Art Museum, for its only venue in the United States.
