Exhibitions on Screen: Degas: Passion for Perfection
Directed by David Bickerstaff
Running time 85 minutes
Journey 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 learned from studying past masters. It uses written accounts by friends and commentators, and the narration of letters written by Degas himself, to reveal a complex truth behind one of the most influential French artists of the late 19th century.
