Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec: At the Moulin Rouge, the Dance

At the Moulin Rouge, the Dance, painted by the Post-Impressionist Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec in 1890, we see a typical contemporary scene in a dancehall. The juxtaposition of the energy and abandon of the dancer and the self-absorption of the woman in the foreground creates an interesting contrast that points out the divide between interior thought and public display.

Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec’s At the Moulin Rouge, the Dance is in the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
