A c. 1870 oil on canvas painting, Orchestra Musicians, by Edgar Degas (1834-1917), the French impressionist painter. The scene is one the artist frequently presents on this subject where the view of the stage is partially blocked by the orchestra seen at an unusual angle and framed as if in a snapshot photograph. (Musée d'Orsay, Paris)
