The National Gallery Masterpiece Tour 2020

Postponed until further notice.

Kirkby Gallery proudly presents Hilaire-Germain-Edgar Degas’s Hélène Rouart in her Father’s Study, the first of three venues to do so as part of The National Gallery Masterpiece Tour 2020 sponsored by Christie’s.

Shown alongside Making an Impression: Prints by Manet, Pissarro and their Contemporaries, Degas’s monumental work will take centre stage within its own dedicated ‘room’. The intriguing domestic scene will offer visitors the opportunity to explore ideas around portraiture and identity.

The exhibition will also reveal the fascinating connections between Degas and the featured Impressionists, examining their artistic practice and relationships both personal and professional.

The Masterpiece Tour 2020 continues at Glan-yr-afon/The Riverside and Gallery Oldham.
