Axé Bahia explores the distinctive cultural role of the city of Salvador, the coastal capital of the Brazilian state of Bahia.

Taking Shape: Degas as Sculptor
Edgar Degas (1834–1917) exhibited just one sculpture during his lifetime: the controversial Little Dancer, Aged Fourteen. This figure startled visitors to the 1881 Impressionist exhibition with its unidealized physiognomy and its radical use of real materials, such as silk slippers and a wig made from human hair.

Finding Form
Line by line and layer by layer, artists conjure three-dimensional worlds from two-dimensional sheets of paper. Selecting from an array of media and techniques—hatched ink lines, varying densities of wash, white chalk highlights—they generate form, likeness, and depth to create an arresting sense of presence. This exhibition features works from the 1500s to the 1800s, all from the Getty Museum’s collection.
