Le Moulin de la Galette

Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) – Le Moulin de la Galette, 1900 (Oil on canvas, Guggenheim Museum) – Le Moulin de la Galette, his first Parisian painting, reflects his fascination with the lusty decadence and gaudy glamour of the famous dance hall, where bourgeois patrons and prostitutes rubbed shoulders… Picasso had yet to develop a unique style, but Le Moulin de la Galette is nonetheless a startling production for an artist who had just turned 19.
