  • Woman Getting Out of the Bath, cast in 1920 from a wax fragment, now destroyed, but modeled probably ca. 1883–90
    Edgar Degas (French, 1834–1917)
    Bronze, number 71/A; 16 3/4 x 7 1/4 x 6 5/8 in. (42.5 x 18.4 x 16.8 cm)
    H. O. Havemeyer Collection, Bequest of Mrs. H. O. Havemeyer, 1929 (29.100.383)

    One of the many sculptured bathers that can be related to similar subjects found among the artist's works on paper, this one is surely the bather seen from the left side, sponging her left knee, in a series of charcoal and pastel drawings that have been dated on stylistic grounds to about 1883 or 1884. The series includes one in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum titled Standing Bather (19.51.3).
