Degas at The Hyde: A Master of Form Exhibit
The Hyde Collection
161 Warren St, Glens Falls, NY 12801
Works from the Permanent Collection.
While Edgar Degas is best known for his works featuring ballet dancers, his subject matter varied widely. Though many of his fellow Impressionists focused on nature, Degas was more interested in the portrayal of form and within that objective he freely changed his medium and his subject matter. Degas utilized modern techniques, while maintaining traditional ideals of art. Whether it is a poised dancer or a horse in motion, a painting, drawing, or sculpture, Degas was a master in his portrayal of form.
