The snake charmer

Etienne Dinet, 1889, oil on canvas. Art Gallery of NSW, purchased 1890.

OK, another from the Art Gallery's collection. This has always been one my favourites, but on looking at it yesterday, I reckon it might be numero uno, trumping even the Queen of Sheba (see below). What do I love about it? Most of all the faces, and the light. Incredible. Posted by Picasa
