Edgar Degas: The Private Impressionist: Works on Paper by the Artist and His Circle

Edgar Degas (1834–1917), one of the most familiar of the Impressionist artists, is known for his iconic paintings of ballet dancers, horse racing, and bathers. This exhibition of more than 100 works on paper is built around a core group of 55 works by Degas, known as one of the strongest draftsmen of the Impressionist circle. From early drawings to late experiments in photography—the exhibition will illuminate the artist’s personal life, his creative restlessness and experimentation, and his wider artistic circle.

The fascinating and sometimes controversial story of underwear design from the 18th century to the present day is told in this blockbuster exhibition organized by London’s Victoria & Albert Museum. Taking a serious look at an alluring subject, Undressed illustrates how undergarments reflect society’s changing ideas about the body, morality, and sex, and examines the intimate relationship between underwear and fashion and its role in molding the body to an always changing fashionable ideal.

Organized into thematic sections that explore such ideas as relaxation, revelation, temptation, transformation, and performance, Undressed looks at how our undergarments shape our  bodies,  and reveal things about ourselves.
