Degas: “Russian Dancers” and the Art of Pastel

Getty Center

1200 Getty Center Drive, Los Angeles, CA 90049

9:00am

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.

Touching the Past: The Hand and the Medieval Book

Getty Center

1200 Getty Center Drive, Los Angeles, CA 90049

9:00am

Precious historical artifacts, manuscripts preserve some of the finest examples of medieval art. Seen in libraries and museums behind glass, these books have been largely removed from the realm of touch, making it easy to forget that their lavishly illuminated pages were once turned, stroked, stitched, and sometimes even sliced by generations before us. Drawn primarily from the permanent collection, Touching the Past: The Hand and the Medieval Book explores manuscripts as tangible, tactile objects that invited touch and were handled—reverently, carelessly, obsessively, and critically—by medieval audiences.
