Here is an original oil painting on old canvas 19 3/4" x 25 1/2" framed to 23" x 29" behind museum glass.
This original painting is attributed to Degas! It is medium size, original, old and impressive. Look at the rich green and turquoise hues. The background has perspective and mottled shapes. The brush strokes, lines and composition are competent and wonderfully complex.
I am selling it as I am 70. My health has changed with tremors and heart issues. I have admired art for a long time.
A woman with reddish hair reclines on a bed or cot. My guess is the artist had a fleeting vision and sought to capture the posture here. Through squinted eyes, the color and detail is remarkable. This work has colors, nuance and newness each time one views it over the years, The back shows suitable old dark unbleached canvas, nails and stretcher. This is an old painting (19th century), not a copy.
This work was shipped from France to Milwaukee. I have tried to be fair in pricing this painting. I think the price is modest for the promising Degas value. I dislike the major auction houses as they demand I prove it is genuine. My hope is that this painting/study finds a good home and is appreciated. Perhaps some future collector with a mass spectrometer and x-rays can analyze the canvas and pigments. This nude study by Degas may turn out to be quite a bargain ! People who have seen this painting are enthused but offer no firm appraisal. They do say Degas painted many private nude studies. This is a rare opportunity to purchase a painting attributed to Degas. I cannot spend years on research. I am content to get new bifocals, settle my debts and retire.
Will ship with care/insurance for $150.00; shipping outside the US at cost. Am glad to answer questions. Please consider an offer.
