Degas' Method

Degas' Method
COPENHAGEN  •  Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek  •  Ongoing

In French painter Edgar Degas' (1834-1917) work there are a number of fundamental elements which exist across oeuvre and motif, technique and chronology. It is with these elements that Degas’ Method is concerned: that which catches one’s attention if the customary pigeonholing of the works is abandoned and the works themselves are returned to the creative ferment from which they emerged, where they exist side by side – and from whence Degas, in a manner entirely his own, has taken and combined them.

Degas’ Method mixes painting, pastel, monotype, sculpture, drawing and several graphic disciplines in the desire to bring together the artist’s production, ranging across motif, technique and chronology. The exhibition falls into four thematic sections:

Degas and Impressionism
Degas and Process
Degas and “The Little Fourteen-Year-Old Dancer”
Degas and Artifice

“No art is less spontaneous than mine,” asserted Edgar Degas (1834-1917). “What I do results from reflection and the study of the great masters; I know nothing of inspiration, spontaneity and temperament.”
