T+L Reports: Degas and Munch, Up Close and Personal

This month, two quiet yet compelling exhibitions explore the significance of a single piece of art through related works and literature. Six Friends at Dieppe—Edgar Degas's 1885 large-scale pastel, which seldom travels—is the focus at Rhode Island's RISD Museum of Art (www.risdmuseum.org; Sept. 17–Jan. 15). More than 70 paintings, prints, and letters offer a privileged glimpse of Degas's artistic circle and the seaside retreat he inhabited on France's Normandy coast. At the Philadelphia Museum of Art (www.philamuseum.org; Sept. 24–Dec. 31), the newly acquired Mermaid by Edvard Munch forms the basis of a collection of 20 paintings, drawings, and prints that document Munch's interest in the subject and chronicle the year the Norwegian artist spent in Paris, 1896, when he created this, his first decorative painting. —Bridget Moriarity
