Melbourne is a great place to live.Consistently voted the World’s Most Livable City , we at 2onthewing will endeavour to give you, over the coming months, a glimpse of what it is like to live here.
Last Saturday was one of those evenings both cool and crisp. Melbourne is lucky , in many ways, as it has the four seasons. Having just passed through our winter , June -August, we enter a colourful time as Spring blossoms. Four seasons give this city an opportunity to display its fashions, food, sporting events, wonderful city gardens and cultural highlights.
Last Saturday night we visited the National Gallery of Victoria International for the closing night of an exhibition by the famous French painter Degas. It was a fun night of art, gypsy swing music, food and wine – things that Melbourne does so well. Join us at the one of Melbourne’s signature attractions…………..
IN CASE YOU ARE INTERESTED
Edgar Degas is one of the most celebrated artists associated with French Impressionism. The art he made over more than fifty years of constant creativity and renewal embraces painting, drawing, printmaking, monotypes, sculpture and photography, and has had an immense impact on modern and contemporary art. Modern life as he experienced it in nineteenth-century Paris provided Degas with a repertoire of motifs he explored with endless variation and innovation; from scenes of work and industry to ballet and the theatre, racecourses and boudoirs. This sweeping exhibition brings together more than 200 works by Degas from dozens of collections worldwide, offering a fresh and dynamic reappraisal of this legendary artist’s genius.
