If you love Degas, then we know where you will be this weekend.
The Royal Academy is hosting a full retrospective of Degas’ best known work – his ballet series, titled Degas and the Ballet: Picturing Movement
The exhibition which opened last Saturday (17 September) uniquely highlights the little known link between the emergence of photography and the artist – how Degas captured the mechanical movement of his subjects and profoundly thought about visual problems when representing the human form in movement.
The exhibition runs until Sunday the 11th of December at the Royal Academy. Make sure you don’t miss the chance to uncover the workings of this modern and radical artist alongside the development of photography and how it truly changed the art world.
And after a full morning of cultural enlightenment, take a quick trip over to Flemings for a delicious lunch at the Flemings Grill – another kind of masterpiece.
