Degas: Beyond Impressionism
The exhibition Degas: Beyond Impressionism, opened at the National Gallery in London. It was, says guest curator Richard Kendall, a "dream exhibition the one I most wanted to do". He was able to focus on the end of Degas' career, when he moved away from Impressionism towards an almost obsessive concentration on just a few themes female nudes, bathers and ballet dancers. A number of the works had not been exhibited at all since Degas' death. -1996

The exhibition Carnivalesque was on view at the Brighton Museum and Art Gallery. This National Touring Exhibition looked at the traditions of carnival through more than 100 works, ranging from medieval woodcuts to drawings and prints. The show was inspired by a quote from the 20th-century Russian philosopher-critic Mikhail Bakhtin who described "festive laughter" as "that peculiar folk humor that always existed and has never merged with the official culture of the ruling classes". Most visitors, however, were content just to take the images of Bruegel, Callot, the Tiepolos and Goya at face value, seeing them as a depiction of where tragedy and farce exist cheek by jowl. -2000
