    by Francesco Vinea

    £63,000

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. 6183
