“Degas in New Orleans,” by Dorothy Johnson, Roy J. Carver Professor of Art History, University of Iowa @ Cedar Rapids Museum of Art
Apr 5 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Edgar Degas is famed for his paintings of young ballet dancers and horse races, but a lesser known aspect of his work is the time he spent in New Orleans. Degas travelled to the city in 1872 to see the American side of his mother’s family, who worked as cotton and textile merchants. The painter saw this six-month stay as a return to his roots and produced eighteen paintings during his time there. Join Dorothy Johnson, Roy J. Carver Professor of Art History at the University of Iowa to discuss this unfamiliar aspect of Degas’ career.
