Degas and Ballet
The autumn biggy at the Royal Academy of Arts in London is Degas and the Ballet: Picturing Movement, which opens on 17 September and pirouettes until 11 December (title link). This "landmark" exhibition traces the development of Degas' ballet imagery throughout his career in parallel with advances in photography and early film. The bad news is the price: £14 or £13 silver surfers. Above is Degas' Two Dancers on the Stage (1874). CLICK for a BBC video preview by Brenda Emmanus.
