Degas at the Races


Horses and jockeys at the racecourse and the steeplechase inspired Degas throughout his career. This packet presents a selection of his paintings and drawings of racehorses and riders, as well as his explorations of the subject in the wax sculptures that he made over the course of more than 30 years.

The Degas at the Races loan packet includes:

  • a 14-page booklet
  • a slideset with 20 works of art.
