EDGAR DEGAS: A Strange New Beauty exhibition at MoMA (#1)

At the Theater/ Woman with a Fan 1878-80 lithograph

ART
EDGAR DEGAS: 
A Strange New Beauty 
Exhibition at MoMA
(Selected Images - Issue  #1)


During the 1880s in Paris, a new technique "monotype" emerged and certainly intrigued artist Edgar Degas. A monotype is a transfer print made from an original work being painted on glass or stone, that is then transferred to paper as a UNIQUE one -of-a-kind print. Often the artist would work back into the print with various media.

Most of the works in this exhibition are shown very rarely, and for that reason the exhibition is so very interesting.

Below is a small sample of the exhibition at Museum of Modern Art, NYC titled:
Edgar Degas: A Strange New Beauty.
