In The Tuileries Gardens, Burgh Hall, Dunoon, Oct 12 to Oct 23
On display at Burgh Hall in Dunoon during October is In The Tuileries Gardens by Edgar Degas, one of the founders of French Impressionism.
Dating from 1880, the oil is on exclusive loan to the Burgh Hall from The Burrell Collection/Glasgow Life on behalf of Glasgow City Council and with the approval of the Burrell Trustees.
“The Burrell Collection holds one of the greatest collections of Degas’ works in the world, which includes pieces from every period of the artist’s career, some never viewed outside of the Collection in Glasgow,” says Bridget McConnell, chief executive of Glasgow Life.
She adds: “This exclusive loan of Degas’ exceptional work, In The Tuileries Gardens, to the Dunoon Burgh Hall, reflects our commitment to share Sir William Burrell’s legacy, giving audiences a richer understanding of the works he acquired and creating opportunities for collaboration with local, national and international communities.”
Events while the painting’s on show include a presentation by Vivien Hamilton, the Burrell Collection’s leading expert on Degas, and a talk by architect John McAslan on the Burrell’s ongoing refurbishment.
