Edgar Degas: Violinist and Young Woman

Edgar Degas

Violinist and Young Woman, c. 1871

“The figures are meticulously rendered but the canvas is unfinished at the lower edge. Degas often returned to paintings — sometimes after decades — but not this one. Perhaps he considered it “finished” after all.”

Graham W. J. Beal, Director, President and CEO
