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…

  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,

  2. 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.
