MY ENTRY for the JUNEABS Challenge

I tried to capture the many colors of the painting as well the pink flower in the ladies hair and in her dress.  The green of the floor, the purple twins, the orange
and purple of the matador, the orange and green of the crowd watching her dance and flow of the orange  draperies...the movement and flow of color.

Marcelle Lender Dancing the Bolero in "Chilpéric," 1895–96.
                                          Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (French, 1864-1901).

About the Artist

"Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (1864-1901) was and remains a remarkable paradox. Scion of an ancient aristocratic family, he spent his adult life among the common people of Paris and Montmartre, even taking rooms in a brothel, and he made the city's seamy night life, cafés, cabarets, dance halls, and theater the principal subject of his art. "Marcelle Lender Dancing the Bolero in "Chilpéric""chronicles the spirit, style, and spectacle of the nineties, and underscores Lautrec's fascination with the ambiguous boundaries between art and artifice and between 'high' and 'low' art." This work, along with his related paintings, drawings, and lithographs, embodies the artist's ultimately egalitarian vision of life and art.
