Bringing new focus to his extraordinary and rarely seen monotype prints and their impact on his wider practice, Edgar Degas: A Strange New Beauty is the first exhibition in the U.S. in nearly 50 years to examine these radical, innovative works—and MoMA’s first exhibition devoted solely to the artist.
