In July 1891 Degas announced to a friend that he was embarking upon a series of lithographs of nude women at their toilette and a second on dancers. While nothing is known of the second series, for the first he produced six lithographs of a nude leaning to one side to dry herself. Two lithographs of the same title presented here (this one and accession no. 23117) are part of the series. Only 20 impressions of this print have been identified.
