That Degas exhibit sounds absolutely fascinating. Wish I could see it. Thanks for your most insightful review.

Thanks, May Louise,
I agree, you would have enjoyed exploring this exhibit. This is one of the most compactly produced exhibits I've seen at the MFA, informative and thorough without being totally overwhelming.

What a lovely review. I wish I could see this show. I will make sure that Lucia gets there.


It was lovely.

Your words not only paint a picture but bring the reader ever so eloquently thru your art form of visualization and imagination. I found the way you described Degas's interaction with the female form exquisite and titillating.

In viewing the pictures, I also sensed that he was capturing the feminine not as an object to be admired as much as portraying the women in their everyday activities in private which provoke curiosity to an outsider.

Without showing the faces, I agree that he is sharing a universal moment behind the closed door akin to what any woman may experience.
