Wed 14 November 2018

At Pomegranate Theatre

Starts 2pm.

Exhibition on Screen journeys from the streets of Paris to the heart of a superb exhibition at the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge, whose extensive collection of Degas’s works is the most representative in Britain. 

With exclusive access to view rare and diverse works, this film tells a fascinating story of Degas’s pursuit for perfection through both experimentation with new techniques and lessons learned from studying the past masters. 

Using written accounts by friends and commentators, and the narration of letters written by Degas himself, this film reveals a more complex truth behind one of the most influential French artists of the late 19th-century and serves as an exploration of the complex workings of Degas’s artistic mind. (85min)
