The Private Impressionist, on view at the Polk Museum of Art at Florida Southern College. The exhibition was organized by Landau Traveling Exhibitions, Los Angeles, in association with FADA Member Gallery Denenberg Fine Arts, West Hollywood, California.
The exhibition is comprised of works from a private collection and seeks to shed light not only on the artist’s favorite themes but also on the complex man himself and the artists he called his friends. Indeed, beyond the work of Degas, the show also boasts more than forty additional works on paper by Degas’ artist friends and colleagues, including Mary Cassatt, Paul Cézanne, Jean-Auguste-Dominque Ingres, and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec.
The Degas collection at the PMA is the property of Robert Flynn Johnson, an art historian and art lover, who curated the show compiled from artworks he has amassed over the past 40 years.
