EDGAR DEGAS: A Strange New Beauty Exhibition at MoMA (#2 cont.)

ART

EDGAR DEGAS: 
A Strange New Beauty 
Exhibition at MoMA
(Continued - Issue #2)


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 a non-absorbant surface like 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 other media.

Most of the works in this exhibition are shown very rarely, for that reason the exhibition is very interesting to all who love Degas' artworks.

Included are some seldom shown etchings, lithographs and oil paintings as well, that relate to the monotypes shown.

Below more of the exhibition at Museum of Modern Art, NYC titled:
