Focusing on two of the great artists of the modern period, this exhibition explores Pablo Picasso's lifelong fascination with the life and work of Edgar Degas. This ground-breaking exhibition examines Degas through Picasso's eyes and the ways his response varied over time from emulation to confrontation and parody to homage.

Picasso Looks at Degas brings together more than 100 works, including paintings, sculpture, and works on paper drawn from more than 40 museums worldwide as well as private collections.

The Clark is the exclusive North American venue for this exhibition which explores the depth of the Spanish artist's fixation through dramatic pairings and groupings that have never been brought together in this ambitious way.
