Your Questions About X10
Can you help me identify this impressionist painting?
Two or three years ago, I saw an exhibit of Impressionist paintings from the Phillips collection. One painting in particular stood out to me, but I can’t remember the artist or title. Now I want to include it in a paper I’m writing, but I’ve been unable to find it. It was rather small, probably about 12″x10“, and depicted a woman seated on a bed, partially turned away from the observer. She’s hunched over with her arms folded over her stomach and seems to be suffering from despair or great grief. If I remember correctly it’s impressionist in the style of Cézanne. It must be a relatively minor work as I’ve never run across it reproduced anywhere since I first saw it, but perhaps one of you art mavens knows what I’m talking about.
Sounds like Degas’ Melancholy. If you put that into google images you’ll get an image.
Here’s the details from a catalogue I have on the Phillip’s Collection:
Hilaire-Germain-Edgar Degas, Melancholy, c. 1874, oil on canvas, 19 x 24.7 cm.
Good luck with your paper.
