Degas, Edgar - The Millinery Shop Art Print

Brandywine General Store

SKU: 145 famous artists

An archival premium Quality Art Print of The Millinery Shop by Edgar Degas for sale by Brandywine General Store. The artist finished this oil on canvas in 1886 and sold it to Paul Drand-Ruel of Paris on February 22, 1913 for 50,000 francs. Several hands later this artwork was bequeathed to the Chicago Art Institute by Mrs L. L. Coburn in 1933 where it still resides today. This canvas is Dega's most ambitious statement on the theme of the millinery shop. Some experts think the young woman is the hat maker who is inspecting her handiwork before putting it out for sale. Other think that because the woman is richly and elegantly dressed including a fur trimmed dress, that she is a well off customer inspecting the hat before purchasing it.
