    John Ruskin: Artist and Observer

    July 4 - September 28, 2014

    Scottish National Portrait Gallery - 1 Queen Street, Edinburgh, EH2

    John Ruskin is remembered as Victorian Britain's leading art critic and as the champion of JMW Turner. But he was also an outstanding artist in his own right.

    Degas/Cassatt

    May 11 - October 5, 2014

    National Gallery of Art - 6th Street and Constitution Avenue NW Washington, DC

    From the moment the American Mary Cassatt made her debut in 1879 with the group of artists known as the impressionists, her name has been linked with that of the Frenchman Edgar Degas.

    The exhibit examines the affinity between the two artists. Both were realists who drew their inspiration from the human figure and the depiction of modern life, and they were peers, moving in the same social and intellectual circles. The two artists engaged in an intense dialogue, turning to each other for advice and challenging each other to experiment with materials and techniques. Their admiration and support for each other endured long after their art began to head in different directions and they remained devoted friends for forty years.
