the Bath - Original
Etching by Edgar Degas
Original electric crayon, etching, drypoint, and aquatint by
Edgar Degas, printed in black ink on thick wove creme paper. Titled Leaving the Bath, Degas' work explores space
and uses experimental techniques, including an electric crayon to create its texture. This work is classic Degas, as
it captures the subject in motion from a rear view.
The original copper plate was likely executed in
1879-80. This impression
is of Reed and Shapiro's twenty-second state after cancellation of the plate. It was printed as part of
Ambroise Vollard's 1919 edition of ~150 impressions from Degas' cancelled plates. Catalog raisonne reference:
