Self Portrait, 1857. Creator: Edgar Degas (French, 1834-1917)

Self Portrait, 1857. In the 1850s Degas frequently used himself as a model, but he made only one self-portrait in a print medium, of which only ten known impressions of the first three states exist. Through successive stages of biting the plate, Degas built up the darks gradually, using layers of crosshatching to achieve large areas of tone. The third and most successful state—like this impression—is the most dramatic due to additional tone and etched lines on the face, hat, and coat. An especially beautiful sheet, the museum's Self-Portrait was printed from a plate carefully wiped to create atmospheric, chiaroscuro effects that allow the clearly drawn eyes to look directly at the viewer, achieving a psychologically powerful and intense portrait of the artist at age 23. This impression was inscribed by the artist to his friend, the painter and sculptor Paul Albert Bartholome.

In the Salon, c. 1880s. Creator: Edgar Degas (French, 1834-1917)

In the Salon, c. 1880s. Just as Degas's illustrations for La Famille Cardinal revealed what went on behind the scenes at the Opera, a series of monotypes depicting Parisian brothels offered a never-before-seen view of a hidden aspect of bourgeois life. Degas's interest in the subject paralleled the theme of the prostitute in naturalist novels of the era by Emile Zola and Edmond and Jules de Goncourt, and echoed the then-contemporary debate about the regulation-or abolition-of prostitution in Paris. The bodies of Degas's prostitutes-heavy, coarse, graceless-emblematized the bourgeoisie's fears of female sexuality and the mingling of social classes. Here, three women-more menacing than inviting-await their clients under a luminous globed chandelier. A standing figure reaches out her left arm as if to beckon an unseen visitor.
