Edgar Degas: The Private Impressionist

Works on Paper by the Artist and His Circle

June 28–October 5, 2014

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 draftsman 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.

Complemented by more than 50 works by his contemporaries, including notables like Giovanni Boldini (18421931), Eugène Carrière (1849–1906), Mary Cassatt (1844–1926), Paul Cézanne (1839–1906), Honoré Daumier (1808–1879), Jean-Léon Gerome (1824–1904), Jean-Auguste Dominique Ingres (1780–1867), Edouard Manet (1832–1883), Adolph Menzel (1815–1905), Gustave Moreau (1826–1898), Camille Pissaro (1830–1903), Pierre Puvis de Chavannes (1824–1898), and James Tissot (1836–1902), Edgar Degas: The Private Impressionist creates an intimate portrait of the artist by investigating his most famous subjects, the people that were close to him, and the types of artworks he himself collected.


The exhibition is organized by
Landau Traveling Exhibitions,
Los Angeles, California,

in association with Denenberg Fine Arts,

West Hollywood, California.


The Pittsburgh presentation is made possible through the generous support of

Charles Courtney Curran:
Seeking the Ideal

November 1, 2014–February 1, 2015

French-trained American artist Charles Courtney Curran (1861-1942) is known for his sparkling canvases of women in gardens and other outdoor settings. Curran brought the broken brushstrokes and sun-drenched palette of French Impressionist painting to a distinctly American landscape—creating many of his works along the shores of Lake Erie and in the mountain hamlet of Craigsmoor, New York. Popular with American collectors, Henry Clay Frick purchased Curran’s 1890 painting Woman with a Horse and Carriage, which typically hangs in the Clayton library. For this exhibition, our painting will join about 60 others as Curran’s work travels to three North American venues (including The Frick Art Museum) in this first critical retrospective of his career since his death in 1942. The exhibition is organized by the Dixon Gallery & Gardens, Memphis, and will be accompanied by a full-color catalogue.

Photo-Secession: Painterly Masterworks of Turn-of-the-Century Photography
February 21–April 19, 2015

An exceptional assemblage of masterworks from Alfred Stieglitz’s (1864–1946) circle of painterly photographers known as the Photo-Secession, this exhibition features rare hand-crafted vintage prints made in a variety of processes. Photo-Secession was the name chosen by Stieglitz in 1902 for a group of artists whose work he took particular interest in and championed through exhibitions at his 291 gallery (officially the Little Galleries of the Photo-Secession) and publication in his hugely influential journal of photographic art Camera Work. The Photo-Secession artists helped to define 20th-century fine art photography and have been hugely influential to succeeding generations of camera artists. This exhibition includes major members of the movement and masters in the field like Gertrude Kasebier (1852–1934), Clarence White (1871–1925), Edward Steichen (1879–1973), and Paul Strand (1890–1976) who are all represented by significant groups of photographs. This exhibition is drawn from the collection of Michael Mattis and Judith Hochberg and organized by art2art Circulating Exhibitions.
