    Monotypes became popular among American artists in the 1880s. Among the first to publicly show works in this medium was William Merritt Chase, who is known to have shown a black and white monotype at the National Academy of Design in New York in 1881. (F. Weitenkampf, American Graphic Art, New York, 1924, p. 109) Nearly thirty years later in 1910, Everett Shinn is known to have shown two monotypes at the American Water Color Society in New York – including works titled: Girl at the Bath and Girl near Mirror. Shinn referred to these works as 'Pastel Monotypes' because he used hints of pastel to enhance the surface of the work after it was pressed. This process, as well as Shinn's chosen subject matter, suggests that he likely would have been familiar with the monotypes and pastel drawings of French Impressionist and innovator, Edgar Degas.
