<p>Edgar Degas (1834-1917) was a French artist who worked in painting, sculpture, drawing, and printmaking. He is considered to be one of the founding fathers of Impressionism, even though he preferred to be called a realist artist. In his early career, Degas focused on historical subjects, but he later turned his attention to more contemporary subjects and images of modern life. Degas’ works often depict the art of dance, horse racing, and the female nude form.</p>
<p>During the formative years that Degas spent working in Italy, 1856 to 1859, he made copies after Old Masters as well as studies of men and women in local costume, both subjects popular among the community of French artists who flocked to Rome. This painting combines a figural style and palette reminiscent of Poussin with an eye for realist detail, evident in the rendering of the woman's wizened skin and gnarled hands. Monumental and unsparing, the picture avoids the picturesque sentimentality common to many contemporary images of peasants and beggars.</p>
