A c. 1876 oil on canvas with gouache and pastel variations, The Song of the Dog (aka The Café Concert), by Edgar Degas (1834-1917), the French impressionist painter. Degas was keen, as here, to capture the extravagant clothes, makeup, and gestures of café performers, particularly in the harsh glow of artificial lighting. (Private Collection)
