About After the Bath, Woman In A Tub "After the Bath, Woman In A Tub" is a pastel drawing by Edgar Degas, made about 1890–95. The work is part of a series of drawings, preliminary sketches and completed works in pastels and oils by Degas from this period that depict women bathing. A woman kneels in the tub, drying herself. What looks like a dressing gown lies on the nearby sofa. A door is open behind her Dega's rendering of the soft glowing skin with its subtle colours and shadows is exquisite. The angle of the head, face hidden in shadow, hair coiled on top, is so beautifully drawn as is the rest of the body.
