Les deux Parisiennes

As I have stated before, one of my favourite artists from the French Fauvist expressionist movement is the Dutchman Kees van Dongen (1877-1968). Seeing more of his work in the Paris musea during our trip last September has only strengthened my appreciation of his art. This painting dates back to 1907 and also reflects some of the elements in the style of my wife's art. Exquisite.
