Dancers in the Times

As if we weren’t excited enough about our upcoming exhibition, Degas’s Dancers at the Barre: Point and Counterpoint, the New York Times gave us star treatment with a beautiful above-the-fold image on the front of the Sunday Arts section. Alastair Macaulay celebrates the opportunity to examine Degas’s decades-long exploration of ballet dancers’ practice and performance in both our show and a complementary one, Degas and the Ballet: Picturing Movement, at the Royal Academy of Arts in London.

Degas’s Dancers at the Barre: Point and Counterpoint opens October 1 and runs through January 8, 2012.
