Members’ talk and Q&A
Degas amassed a collection of over 500 paintings and drawings and 5000 prints, which he dreamt of displaying in a museum of his own.
Although Degas never lived to see the dream fulfilled, works sold after his death are now in public and private collections across the world, including several in the National Gallery Collection.
Join Dr Christina Bradstreet to learn about his collection and to trace connections between Degas's own art and the paintings he loved, by artists as diverse as Ingres, Delacroix, Manet, and Van Gogh.
After the talk, Christina will be happy to answer your questions in a live Q&A.
