Much as Degas was fascinated by the movements of dancers, he was also intrigued by the repetitive, specialized gestures made by laundresses as they worked. This painting, the first of three versions of the composition, is distinguished by its dramatic chiaroscuro, with the woman silhouetted against a luminous white backdrop. Purchased by the singer and collector Jean-Baptiste Faure, the canvas was returned so that Degas could rework it. The artist, however, kept the picture and lent it to the 1876 Impressionist exhibition, receiving praise for his "rapidly done silhouettes of laundresses."

Disclaimer: We try to depict our products as exact as possible and to illustrate them visually on the product detail pages. Nevertheless, the tone of the printed materials, as well as the print result can diverge slightly from the image on the monitor. Depending on the screen settings and the nature of the surface, color pigments can unfortunately not be printed 100% realistically. Given that all our fine art prints are processed and printed by hand, there might as well be minor discrepancies in the size and exact position of the motif.
