Meet Me in St. Louis … for Degas

Good news for St. Louis residents and visitors: The Saint Louis Art Museum has added Degas’ 1898 oil painting, The Milliners, to its collection. This painting is the first Degas oil in the museum’s collection—SLAM has two of the artist’s pastels, three drawings, nine prints and two sculptures—and was bought for almost $10 million, according to the St. Louis Post Dispatch.

Coincidentally, on the cover of our December issue you’ll find Degas’ famous pastel, Four Ballerinas Resting between Scenes, from the upcoming 8 Wonders of the Pastel World feature. Look for it on newsstands Oct. 30!
