Edgar Degas, 1834-1917, Before the Race, 1882-84

  • 100% Silk
  • 100cm x 130cm
  • Designed and Printed in Britain

Throughout his lifetime, Degas created numerous works of art inspired by horses, and they were a favourite subject of his; as an art student, he filled his notebooks with sketches of horses. This piece is one of three paintings with the same title, all painted in the early 1880s. Having been inspired by a visit to several racing studs, Degas chose to focus on the movement and colours of jockeys and horses before the race, presenting the scene as if capturing a passing moment.

Usage: Generally, we find tailors prefer to work with two panels of a single painting per jacket in order to line up the image along the back seam. For full details on how best to use our linings, click here: Linings FAQ.
