EDGAR DEGAS (1834-1937) ETCHING 1938

Estimate: $700 - $1,000

Description: After Edgar Degas (1834-1917) Etching from Ludovic Halévy, La Famille Cardinal, Paris, Auguste Blaizot & Fils, 1938. Printed on Velin de Rives paper. Professionally framed and matted, in ornate gilt frame measures 30"x27"x2.25", sight is 8.50"x9.50". Weight is 13 pds. PROVENANCE: A Charleston SC Private Estate. Edgar Degas (1834-1917) is best known as an observer of modern Paris life. Born into an aristocratic family, he was often found backstage at the Paris Opera, sketching the young, ballet dancers in the chorus line. Degas is also known for scenes of Paris racetracks and horses, restaurant interiors, cabarets and cafés, brothels and prostitutes and, above all, his portraiture, with its searing delineation of social class. Degas' close friend, writer Carmen Ludovic Halévy, documented Paris backstage activity in short stories gathered into one volume called La Famille Cardinal. Degas illustrated these fictional adventures of Pauline and Virginie Cardinal and their parents. Halévy, however, failed to recognize the greatness of these monotypes. They remained unpublished until 1938 when Marcel Guérin, David Weill and publisher Auguste Blaizot formed a consortium to purchase the lot at auction. These etchings are important because many Degas monotypes have vanished.

Edgar Degas Lithograph from 1923

Estimate: $2,500 - $3,000

Description: Edgar Degas lithograph from over 50 years ago Approx 20x24 inches. Custom framed. Includes certificate of authentiicity.

Condition Report: This is new in mint condition. Edgar Degas (1834-1917) spent almost all of his eighty-three years in the city of Paris. He was the eldest son of a prosperous banker and decided to abandon the study of law in 1855 to begin his training as an artist in the academic system. The only one out of five children to become a painter, he was something of a renegade in his family. He was a reclusive who spurned publicity of any kind, but nonetheless was known in public as a wit and a brilliant conversationalist. Within his lifetime, as today, Degas was most celebrated as the painter of one subject: the ballet. Above all the subjects that he treated, whether the early history paintings, the scenes of life in the modern city-race courses and cafes, shopgirls, and laundresses-or the portraits of family and friends that he continued to paint throughout his life, it is the dancer that is now associated with the name of Degas in the popular imagination.The sustained series of dancers and bathers produced in the later years have the quality of a private language, obsessional and irresoluble. Quite different from earlier treatments of the same themes, they lack narrative and spatial definition, any sense of audience and immediate charm. The lonely figures are rendered in colors that are frequently shrill and coarse, while the surface is attacked, scraped and reworked, often with the artists fingers and thumbs. Many of Degas key works are in charcoal on tracing paper or in pastel that is richly textured and layered.
