NOW SHOWING: Exhibition on Screen present DEGAS: PASSION FOR PERFECTION
Presented with Hamptons International Film Festival

FRIDAY, MAY 3 | 8 PM | $15 ($10 for Friends of SAC and HIFF Members)

DEGAS: PASSION FOR PERFECTION

From the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge and Directed by David Bickerstaff

Running time: 85 minutes

EXHIBITION ON SCREEN journeys from the streets of Paris to the heart of a superb exhibition at the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge, whose extensive collection of Degas works is the most representative in Britain. With exclusive access to view rare and diverse works, this film tells a fascinating story of Degas pursuit for perfection through both experimentation with new techniques and lessons learnt from studying the past masters.

Sometimes frustrated by his own failings, Degas was consumed by obsessive principles and failing eye sight but his determination to capture everyday life was evident in every mark he made. Never fully satisfied, many of Degas drawings and sculptures were kept in private during his lifetime but, now through close examination, they can be seen as some of the most beautifully detailed and expressive works in the modern era. Using written accounts by friends and commentators, and the narration of letters written by Degas himself, this film reveals a more complex truth behind one of the most influential French artists of the late 19th-century and serves as an exploration of the complex workings of Degas artistic mind.

Art is not a matter of what you see, but what you make other people see. Edgar Degas
