About This Activity

The children's book What Degas Saw tells the story of the artist Edgar Degas, who walks through the streets of Paris collecting impressions of the modern world and the people who inhabit it. From the moving bus, he notes that the faces of pedestrians become blurry; at the Opera House, he observes ballerinas stretching and chatting. He takes in his changing city with open eyes and a curious mind. Join Samantha Friedman, an Assistant Curator at The Museum of Modern Art and the author of What Degas Saw, to learn what Degas saw, and to ask: what do you see? Just as this artist paid careful attention to his surroundings in 19th century Paris, we'll write about what we notice in our own city, in our own time. Samantha Friedman is the author of the children's books Matisse's Garden (2014) and What Degas Saw (2016). She holds a BA from Northwestern University and an MA from Columbia University.
