"Edgar Degas’s painting Portrait of a woman is an enigmatic piece. When it was first acquired by the National Gallery of Victoria in 1937, it was unveiled to mixed reviews.

Some commented that it showed the hallmarks of the French painter’s style around the 1870s. Others criticised its brown hues and the apparent discolouration across the woman’s face.

The Conversation

Little did they know at the time that the painting held a secret: there was another portrait of a woman, inverted, lying just under the surface. Some of the discolouration was due to this other ghostly figure bleeding through.

It appears that Degas abandoned this earlier work and repurposed the canvas for the newer portrait. But when did he paint the first woman? Who was the model?"

This was the challenge taken up by the Australian Synchrotron with strong collaboration with the CSIRO and the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV).
