Degas became famous for his pictures of scenes from the theatre. Dancers in the ballet studio and in the theatre wings were popular subjects. He also gained access to the dressing rooms, where he drew dancers before and after performances, as here while the woman is bathing. He also used models in his studio to make intimate studies like this.
