1. Scène de fête (c.1889). Giovanni Boldini (Italian, 1842-1931). Oil on canvas. Musée d’Orsay.

    Here, Boldini is certainly depicting the Moulin Rouge just after it opened in 1889. The establishment quickly became one of the hot spots of Parisian nightlife. The vigorous and dynamic brushstrokes and the liveliness of the red recreate the feeling of fun and freedom, sweeping along diners and dancers alike in a brilliantly rendered composition.
