Degas Exhibition

Hello my dear readers,

I hope you all had a pleasant weekend.
Today, I was at the Fondation Beyeler, a museum in Basel. 
Currently, there is an exhibition of Edgar Degas' late work, so the paintings, sculptures and photographies he made around 1900. I'm not very experted when it comes to visual arts, but Degas is an artist whose work I enjoy.
Préparation à la danse, pied droit en avant
The paintings and sculptures of the dancers were naturally my favourite part of the exhibition. I admire how accurat Degas worked when it came to posture and expression, while still having an affinity for details.

I liked especially how he painted the tutus of the dancers. Some remided me of peacock feathers, so beautiful!
However, possibly my favourite piece was the one of the lady in front of the mirror, Devant le miroir. So elegant!

I decided to wear my new blouse from Innocent World and the new wig from GothicLolitaWigs:

derpy face is derpy

I really like how this outfit turned out. Unfortunately, the sleeves of the blouse are quite short (>.<). And the shoes don't match the colour of the jsk precisely. But besides that, I think it's not too bad (^.^)

Wig: GothicLolitaWigs
Alice band: Claire's
Blouse: Innocent World
Jsk: Last Country
Tights: H&M
Shoes: Bodyline
Bag: Loris
 I also put on falsies (something I haven't done for a while, but I just love the effect), I was glad they stayed in place the whole time.
(I'm also super glad my bridge piercing healed so perfectly (^.^) )


  1. In galleries in my city there are exhibitions of modern art last few months. It's not bad but sometimes is good to see something more classical so I'm jealous of this great exhibition :D
    And you see really pretty, your outfit is so lovely!

  2. Edgar Degas zählt zu meinen Lieblingskünstlern. In der 10.Klasse habe ich in Kunst ein Referat über ihn gehalten. Ich finde seine Balettbilder am schönsten. Mein Lieblingsbild von Ihm ist The Green Dancer.

  3. I love Degas's work. So beautiful.
