2017-12-14 10:00 - Degas, Caricature and Modernity: Daumier, Gavarni, Keene
Edgas Degas (1834-1917) possessed what his friend Walter Sickert (1860-1942) described as 'a rollicking and somewhat bear-like sense of fun'. This exhibition looks at three caricaturists and satirists whose work Degas admired and collected in large numbers: Honoré Daumier (1808-79), Paul Gavarni (1804-66) and Charles Keene (1823-91).

Edgar Degas's famous painting In a Café (L'Absinthe, 1875-6), features a dissolute bearded man whom Degas modeled on his characterful friend and fellow artist Marcellin Desboutin (1832-1902). Both men shared a passion for printmaking and this exhibition explores the Museum's rare collection of Desboutin's sensitively executed prints in drypoint
