Caught On Camera!

   Soon after Mrs Butterworth moved into No.1 Buckingham Place she made a few changes. Gone are the three “spy” or Vanity Prints once on that back wall. They have been replaced by three works of art…just a minute, is that a Gauguin? He painted ballet dancers, and there’s one in a yellow tutu, but that’s not the same painting here. But it appears to be in the style of Gauguin. But what would Mrs Butterworth be doing with an original Gauguin? It’s probably a Woollies {Woolworths} repro and put in a nice looking frame!

Be seeing you


  1. Although not an expert in paintings I would opt for Edgar Degas. Because female ballet dancers are among his most favourite subjects as a quick web search reveals. However, still not 100% sure. - BCNU!

    1. Hello arno,
      Compliments of the season to you.
      I have just had a quick look on-line at some of Edgar Degas' paintings or ballet dancers, and he is certainly a contender, perhaps more so than my suggestion.

      Best regards
