 There has been ongoing debate as to whether Degas was misogynistic or not when considering his most common subjects: ballet dancers and women bathers.  Join Elizabeth Sandoval of The Ohio State University’s Department of the History of 
Art for a look at some pastels, sculptures, and paintings of dancers, bathers, and women, including his precious statue of the fourteen-year-old Marie Van Goethem.  So what do you think? Was Degas woman’s friend or foe?
