Degas: “Russian Dancers” and the Art of Pastel

Getty Villa Malibu

17985 Pacific Coast Highway, Los Angeles, CA

11:00am

This installation of nineteenth-century pastels features one of Degas’s greatest late works, Russian Dancers (1899), on loan from a private collection. In an unusual departure from his depictions of ballet, Degas produced a monumental series based on the unfamiliar steps of Ukrainian folk dance. Inspired by the performances of traveling troupes he probably saw in Parisian cafés and theaters, Degas used the rich, powdery medium of pastel to capture their swirling movements and vibrant costumes. Degas: “Russian Dancers” and the Art of Pastel sets this masterpiece in context with other works in pastel and colored chalks of Parisian popular entertainments.

J. M. W. Turner: Painting Set Free

Getty Villa Malibu

17985 Pacific Coast Highway, Los Angeles, CA

12:00pm

Extraordinarily inventive and enduringly influential, J. M. W. Turner (1775–1851) produced his most important and famous pictures after the age of sixty, in the last fifteen years of his life. Demonstrating ongoing radicalism of technique and ever-original subject matter, these works show Turner constantly challenging his contemporaries while remaining keenly aware of the market for his art. Bringing together over sixty key oil paintings and watercolors, this major international loan exhibition is the first to focus on the unfettered creativity of Turner's final years.

The exhibition was organized by Tate Britain, in association with the J. Paul Getty Museum and the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco.
