MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — New Hampshire's Currier Museum of Art is exhibiting two works by impressionist artist Edgar Degas (day-GAAH), including one so fragile it hasn't been on display for a decade.

The artist's 1882 painting — known in English as "Dance Rehearsal" — is on loan to the museum by an anonymous donor through Thanksgiving.

Museum officials say the loan prompted them to display the museum's fragile Degas pastel drawing titled "Dancers" alongside it.

The works of several other impressionists on loan to the museum are also on display. The Manchester museum is open Labor Day and is closed most Tuesdays and Thursdays.
