We’re just months away from the launch of MSC Cruises’ newest ship MSC Grandiosa and that means new details about the highly anticipated ship are coming fast and furious. The most recent update let cruisers know about a new fine art experience made just for the new ship. The immersive art and dining experience featuring Degas Danse Dessinaims to bring guests closer to the world of fine art with a spellbinding exhibition of original Impressionist art.

Fine Art at Sea

Housed in a purpose-built installation within the chic L’Atelier Bistro at the heart of the ship’s Mediterranean-style Promenade, the Edgar Degas exhibition is the first curation of this unique collection on board a cruise ship. The Danse Dessin series presents 26 studies of movement and dance and was previously exhibited in major international galleries and museums. 

Degas’ work encapsulates the soul of a romantic Paris, truly fitting within the setting of the new French Bistro on board MSC Grandiosa. It will also offer an immersive experience for guests with five videos running alongside the artwork detailing details of Degas’ work and life.

Marcello Smarrelli, the exhibit’s curator, explained how the artist’s style was perfect for an interactive exhibition. 

“Despite his apparently romantic subjects, Degas was a great experimenter, deeply interested in the use of new technologies available in those years of great scientific and industrial renewal. The focus of his artistic research was the study of the movement of the human body and the attempt to reproduce it in an artwork” he said. “For this reason, his artistic practice was fundamental for the birth of photography and cinema of which Degas was a pioneer. I’m sure he would have loved this interactive art exhibition, the first of its kind at sea and it is an exciting opportunity to connect people with Degas’ artwork in a new way and bring it to life through digital content for MSC Cruises guests.”
