1. Portrait of a Young Beauty. Federico Zandomeneghi (Italian, Impressionism, 1841-1917). Pastel.

    Like his close friend Edgar Degas he was primarily a figure painter, although Zandomeneghi’s work was more sentimental in character than Degas’. He also admired the work of Mary Cassatt and Pierre-Auguste Renoir, and his many paintings of women in their domestic routines follow their example. He took up working in pastels in the early 1890s, and became especially adept in this medium.
