Happy birthday to French artist Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. With its top hats and cancan dancing, this famous work of his depicts a wild night in Paris at the Moulin Rouge.

Seated Dancer. Jean-Louis Forain (French, 1852-1931). Oil on canvas. Ashmolean.

Forain shows his interest in backstage themes involving actual performers. Many images of dancers reveal Forain as being captivated by their activity, similar to what his friend Degas was doing. Forain’s Seated Dancer also shows his increasing fluidity in his approach to painting.
