A tribute to Edgar Degas at the Orsay Museum

A tribute to Edgar Degas at the Orsay Museum

The main theme of this exhibition was found in a little-known book by the writer, poet and thinker, Paul Valéry. The friendship of Valéry and the artist Edgar Degas, which lasted more than twenty years, gave rise to a work that is both intimate and universal, Degas Danse Dessin, a meditation on creativity.
Through drawings, paintings and sculptures by the Master and excerpts from Valéry’s text, this exhibition highlights the major themes of Degas Danse Dessin, creating an echo between the images and the words. A fascinating and informative tribute on the occasion of the centenary of the death of one of the major figures of Impressionism.

Until February 25th, 2018, at Level 5 of the Musée d'Orsay
1 Rue de la Légion d'Honneur, 7th

Open every day except Tuesdays from 9:30 to 18:00. Late opening on Thursdays until 21:45
