Edgar Degas: A Strange New Beauty

In her Introduction to Edgar Degas: A Strange New Beauty, MoMA curator Jodi Hauptman writes, "To the writer Arsène Alexandre, writing not long after the artist's death, 'his monotypes represent the area of his work in which he was most free, most alive, and most reckless… not hampered by any rule.' Indeed it is in the monotypes that Degas is at his most modern—capturing the spirit of urban life, depicting the body in new and daring ways, debating the singular and the copy, liberating mark-making from the tradition and boldly engaging the possibilities of abstraction." Featured image is "Forest in the Mountains" (c. 1890).
