An 1869 oil on canvas painting, A Carriage at the Races, by Edgar Degas (1834-1917), the French impressionist painter. The scene is typical of Degas' style where the subject is markedly off-centre and with parts even out of the frame. The man in the top hat sat looking down (not coincidentally) on the wetnurse is the artist's childhood friend Paul Valpinçon. (Museum of Fine arts, Boston)
