The Thrill of the Performance

If you didn’t get enough of the performer’s life during our Degas’s Dancers at the Barre show, a gallery on the second floor of the Sant Building might do the trick: more Degas dancers (plus a portrait titled Melancholy, who appears to be observing the action in the room), Delacroix’s Paganini, Manet’s Spanish Ballet, and Daumier’s The Strong Man. For a little treat, move into the next gallery to view Bonnard’s Circus Rider and peek around the corner to see her paired with her side-show companion, the Strong Man.
