Degas abandoned this work at a relatively early stage of preparation and it remained in the studio until his death. While some areas are quite sketchy, others, such as the woman’s profile and details of her hat are painted with great delicacy. This picture belongs to a group of works in which Degas explored the effect of light on the human figure. An old label on the back of the painting calls it ‘At the Race-Course’, which may explain the woman’s elegant appearance.
