Another in our series of "Photographs I took of great paintings at the Art Institute of Chicago." This, as you no doubt recognize is the famous "At La Moulin Rouge" by Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec.
Yes, yes, I know the artist had the hard part actually painting the picture, but it's not like just anyone can walk up and take a photograph of it. After all, you have to actually be there at the Art Institute and find the thing. What happens next is that usually you go, "Wow! That's the Moulin Rouge painting by Toulouse-Lautrec!" And so it is.
You'll note the fine use of perspective by the photographer, so cleverly angling the frame of the painting so that it's a bit cockeyed and adds to the impressionism of the artist...
Robert J. Elisberg is a political commentator, screenwriter, novelist, tech writer and also some other things that I just tend to keep forgetting.
