Palace Electric Canberra 8 and 9 June at 12 noon
This pioneering series of cinematic films about exhibitions, galleries and artists returns for a sixth season with Degas: Passion for Perfection, directed by David Bickerstaff and produced by Phil Grabsky.
We see the beautiful Degas collection at The Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge, and then journey to Paris and Italy, where Degas spent his formative years and taught himself to paint.
Degas: Passion for Perfection offers an insight into Degas’ personal and creative life, exploring his relationship with the impressionist movement, fascination with dance, and struggle with his eyesight, which in time would prevent him from making art altogether.
