Edgar Degas: A Strange New Beauty

Karen Wilkin reviews Edgar Degas: A Strange New Beauty at The Museum of Modern Art, New York, on view through July 24, 2016.

Wilkin writes: "Powerful as Degas’s monotypes of figures are, the most surprising works in 'Strange New Beauty' may be the landscapes. Made in the early 1890s, and sometimes based on shadowy second pullings, they are unusual for using color and astonishing for their economy and directness. Some—even those with 'clarifying' pastel additions … —verge on abstraction."
