Portrait of a Woman



An old mystery has been finally solved. A portrait was found under the famed Degas painting. And Emma Dobigny was one of Dega’s favourite models who seem to appear…..

Portrait of a woman
Edgar Degas was born as Hilaire-Germain-Edgar De Gas, was a French artist famous for paintings, sculptures and drawings. Degar was born in Paris and he began to paint early in life.

An article published in the recent week in an online journal Scientific Report reveals that the long-puzzled-over image concealed behind Dega’s ‘Potrait of a woman’ is, in fact, a portrait of another woman. A powerful X-ray technique has unveiled a hidden portrait beneath the famed painting by French impressionist artist Edgar Degas, solving a mystery that stumped the art world for decades. Australian researchers believe she is Emma Dobigny, one of the painter’s favourite models.

Degas appeared to have originally given the woman pixie-like ears, but later reworked them to a more conventional shape. For nearly a century, experts have known that Degas painted the famed portrait over another image sometime between 1876 and 1880. As the painting aged, the faint outline of what appeared to be another woman began leaking through the top layers of paint.

So the gallery teamed up with scientists from Australian Synchrotron, who spent 33 hours painstakingly scanning the painting with a high-definition X-ray beam. The scan revealed not only to see the details of the entire hidden image, but its evolution, thereby solving the old mystery.
