Degas: A Strange New Beauty

Recently, I was in Manhattan and went to the MOMA. While there I went to see the traveling exhibit “Degas: A Strange New Beauty” on view through July 24, 2016. Some pieces in this exhibit really blew me away, and were truly inspiring. The exhibition includes approximately 120 rarely seen monotype—along with some 60 related paintings, drawings, pastels, sketchbooks, and prints. It’s worth a visit if you are in NYC.
