Fan Mount: Dancers

Edgar Degas French

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 816

In 1879, when Degas created this work, he was organizing a gallery at the fourth Impressionist exhibition devoted to his own painted fans alongside those of Félix and Marie Bracquemond, Jean-Louis Forain, Morisot, and Pissarro. Cassatt, who owned this fan, considered it "the most beautiful one that Degas painted." She sold it to Louisine Havemeyer in 1919.
