1. The end of the ball. Rogelio de Egusquiza (Spanish, 1845-1915). Oil on panel.

    This work reveals the artist at the height of his skill, both compositionally and stylistically. Dressed in traditional 19th Century costume, the couple is depicted dancing a waltz. The artist combines the depiction of an elegantly dressed woman with beautiful roses and the atmosphere of the Belle Epoque.

    From his view of the room, Egusquiza is able to focus not only on the entertainers in the foreground but also on what is happening to the back of the room and beyond to the activity behind the curtains.
