Powdered Pigments: A Focus on Pastels in the Norton Simon Museum

Curator Leah Lehmbeck takes a look at the Norton Simon’s exceptional collection of 19th-century pastels, focusing on Degas’s mastery of the medium, as well as examples by Forain and Toulouse-Lautrec. Created to mark the renovation of the Museum’s 19th-century art wing, the video showcases the Museum’s new pastel gallery, which was designed to best display these fine and delicate works of art.
