A unique Degas loan is on view at the museum which focuses Degas transition to modern life painting. While still retaining the aesthetic qualities of impressionism, this exhibit gets in touch with viewers a different side of Degas as well as his signature dancers.
Steeplechase: The Fallen Jockey, marks the transition but its importance lies in its effect to convey the tragedy of the fall and its apparent abstract qualities. The exhibit promises to be extremely intimate while combining several more works with the Institute's permanent collection.
The Impressionists were the first to move away from traditional art and attempted to separate themselves from the Salon in Paris. They wanted to move away from smooth finishes and these works are great examples of this undertaking.
