AbstractThanks to the two curators of the exhibition, Elizabeth Cowling and Richard Kendall, recognized authorities on Picasso and Degas, respectively, and to a spectacular selection of images, we can delve into the complex meshes of affinity that link these two crucial figures of modern painting. The essays here reveal the artists’ parallel interests in themes of urban life, dance, brothels or scenes of women at their toilette, and their shared passions for sculpture and photography.
