Bella showed me this painting tonight, by the famous Impressionist painter Edgar Dogas. It is called "Allons Danser!" (French for "Let's Dance") and portrays a beautiful prima ballerina from the French company "Toutous et Tutus", very popular in the Belle Epoque and renowned by her very flexible danseuses.
(Collage based on an Edgar Degas oil, using some William Morris wall papers blended in the background and Bella as the model)
