|Head with Horns by Paul Gauguin|
I was captivated by Paul Gauguin's sandalwood sculpture "Head with Horns", acquired by the Getty in 2002. I could not recall seeing this piece before. It was mesmerizing.
Now on is a special exhibit of Degas' work - "Russian Dancers and the Art of Pastel". Pastel was a medium of choice, and he was a master. (As a student artist, I made copies of numerous Degas drawings, practicing my craft). I always enjoy seeing the layers and textures created by the pastel on paper. The exhibit runs through October 11, 2015.
And some more views for your enjoyment-
