About the Show: Picasso Looks at Degas is a thorough examination of how Pablo Picasso, arguably the best-known artist of the 20th-century, was influenced by Edgar Degas, a towering figure in late 19th-century art. The exhibition is the result of five years of intensive research by curators Elizabeth Cowling, Professor Emeritus of History of Art at Edinburgh University, and Richard Kendall, Curator at Large at the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute. Some 120 paintings, works on paper and sculptures by the two artists, arranged in side-by-sde groupings, are on display.
