Edgar Degas: Private Paradox
Friday, October 29, 2021, 7:00 – 8:15 pm via Zoom
Presenter: Janet Mandel, Arts Educator

Registration: https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_kRn7eYwVT_6l7Qhg297EKQ

A leading figure of 19th-century artistic innovation, Edgar Degas rejected academic traditions and instead chose to chronicle modern life—ballet dancers, café culture, brothels, the races, and intimate moments at the bath. He was a master of drawing, painting, sculpture, pastels and printmaking, as well as a curmudgeonly and caustic wit.

About Our Presenter: Janet Mandel taught in New Jersey’s public schools for 32 years, the last eighteen of which were at Columbia High School in Maplewood, where she taught English, art history, and World Languages and Cultures. Now retired, Janet presents illustrated talks on a variety of art history topics at adult schools, libraries, museums, senior centers, community centers, and similar venues.
