Degas in Cambridge

If you're stopping in New England this fall, don't miss Degas at Harvard, a big exhibit of Degas painting, drawing, photography, and sculpture at the Fogg. It's not a blockbuster show (no gift shop!). It's three rooms of superb Degas, including some wonderful drawings.

The bronzes are superbly displayed, too, in free air instead of the usual glass cases. To be honest, the two Arabesques were the first time I think I've really seen how finely modeled these are.
