Drawn in Colour: Degas from the Burrell Collection
The Burrell Collection in Glasgow houses more than twenty pictures by Edgar Degas. Paintings, pastels and drawings include all the artist’s most recognisable motifs: ballet dancers, bathers, jockeys and women at work. Together with a selection of the National Gallery’s oils and pastels on related themes, they represent every stage of Degas’s long career.
Essays and picture notes show how the immediacy of these works is enhanced by the artist’s energetic technique; frequent revisions often remain visible on the surface. These are not so much spontaneous sketches as daring experiments in form and colour. Julien Domercq sets the pictures in the context of Degas’s career and the on-going critical assessment of his art. Harriet K. Stratis explains the artist’s innovative use of pastels. Vivien Hamilton examines the life and milieu of Degas’s contemporary Sir William Burrell, the wealthy Scottish shipping magnate and philanthropist, for whom forming this impressive collection of Degas’s works was an unusual foray into contemporary art.
