Tea time

This wonderful back and white picture reminded me of a painting by Manet...

Notice the head of the maid is bent just like statue behind her..


You know the one I meant, don't you? The boldness is the same, the nonchalance of the figurants are the same, the unsuspected nudity is the same...

Le Déjeuner sur l'herbe

  1. What à nice pic!
    It looks more beautiful in black- white.
    I have never seen this painting before.
    And yes, I see what you mean.

    Thank you, Han.

    1. The Manet painting is quite famous for the strange combination of a naked woman at ease in an environment of clothed men in a park.

      And yes, the people in the picture are beautiful as well.

      Glad you like it,
      Han
