Ramon Casas, Dance in the Moulin de la Galette, 1890-1891, Paris, oil on canvas

Ramon Casas painted this work in 1891, during his third stage in Paris. It is an oil painting done with a particular economy of colour, where greys and dark tones dominate, offering a melancholy image of one of the Montmartre leisure spots of the late nineteenth century.

Experts consider this work to be one of the key pieces in his long, accomplished career.
