In_Motion_1200x630In Motion: Dance and Performance in Art

Through Jan. 3, 2016 | Works on Paper Gallery

Dancing is a powerful expression of movement and emotion. It can be part of celebration, formal performance, or even religion, and has always been a natural subject for art. Spontaneous or choreographed, private or public, always evolving and ever popular, dance has been a vehicle for artists to study the human body in motion, to lampoon human foibles, and to express joy or romance. These and other aspects of dance can be seen in this exhibition assembled mainly from the collection of the Toledo Museum of Art.

Edgar Degas (French, 1834–1917), The Dancers. Pastel on paper, about 1889. 24 ½ by 25 ½ in. Purchased with funds from the Libbey Endowment, Gift of Edward Drummond Libbey, 1928.198. In the special exhibition Degas and the Dance, Canaday Gallery, through Jan. 10, 2016Degas and the Dance

Little Dancer of Fourteen Years, on loan from the Clark Art Institute of Williamstown, Massachusetts, occupies center stage in this exhibition that revolves around Hilaire Germain Edgar Degas (1834-1917), one of France’s leading Impressionists. Other works by Degas on the subject of ballet, including bronze sculptures and paintings, will be shown. Among them are TMA’s bronze Study in Nude of Little Dancer Aged Fourteen and pastel The Dancers, as well as important works on loan from the Museé d’Orsay in Paris, the Clark Art Institute in Williamstown, Massachusetts, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and the National Gallery of Art and The Phillips Collection, both in Washington, D.C. The exhibition is presented in celebration of The Toledo Ballet’s 75th annual performance of “The Nutcracker” and will include a section of memorabilia and costumes from the ballet. Free admission.
