Description: EDGAR DEGAS
Femme nue debout à sa toilette.

Lithograph printed in black on smooth, cream wove paper, 1891-92. 333x245 mm; 13 1/2x9 3/4 inches, full margins. Sixth state (of 6). One of approximately 12 impressions in this state (from a combined approximately 40 impressions in all 6 states). Signed or inscribed with Degas's name in pencil, lower left. Printed by Auguste Clot, Paris.

Ex-collection the printer, Auguste Clot, Paris, with a signed attestation by the printer's grandson, Guy Georges, dated May 1, 1996.

According to Reed/Shapiro, perhaps half of the known "edition" of this lithograph in all 6 states were located in the 1950s by E. W. Kornfeld, "In the hands of Maurice Exsteens, who had acquired them from his father-in-law, the Parisian collector and publisher Gustave Pellet (1859-1919). Pellet had evidently obtained them sometime between 1900 and 1910 and is said to have had them signed by Degas."

N. G. Stogdon notes that, "The question of the name of Degas in a hard pencil on impressions of some of the prints has also arisen . . . Those we have observed on [Reed/Shapiro] catalogue numbers 61 and 65 are in hard pencil and are not typical of Degas's hand in his later years," (Edgar Degas, Catalogue XII, 2006, catalogue number 16). Delteil 65; Adhémar 63; Reed/Shapiro 61.
