  • The Singer in Green, ca. 1884
    Edgar Degas (French, 1834–1917)
    Pastel on light blue laid paper; 23 3/4 x 18 1/4 in. (60.3 x 46.4 cm)}
    Signed (lower right): Degas
    Bequest of Stephen C. Clark, 1960 (61.101.7)

    The model for this pastel of about 1884 resembles Marie von Goethem, who posed for Degas's sculpture The Little Fourteen-Year-Old Dancer. Degas's use of vivid yellow, turquoise, and orange is characteristic of the saturated hues and complementary colors with which artists in his circle began to experiment in the mid-1880s.
