    Francesco Vinea (1845 – 1902) was an Italian painter recognised for his period costume genre subjects. He preferred dynamic, imaginative, and often witty depictions of dramas over more classical historical or landscape painting. The Dance is, as the name implies, a merry scene; a couple dances at its centre, encircled by jovial music players and characters drinking together. There are several curiosities about this composition – the dancer appears to be blindfolded, and a family of ducks strolls by as if part of a different narrative altogether.
