"Do skyscrapers ever grow tired/ Of holding themselves up high?/ Do they ever shiver on frosty nights/ With their tops against the sky?/ Do they feel lonely sometimes,/ Because they have grown so tall?/ Do they ever wish they could lay right down/ And never get up at all?" poetess: Rachel Field.
Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (French, 1864–1901). The Seated Clowness (Mademoiselle Cha-u-Kao), 1896. The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. Alfred Stieglitz Collection, 1949 (49.55.50) | The success of Toulouse-Lautrec's posters advertising Parisian cabarets such as the Moulin Rouge led him to produce deluxe editions of prints of Montmartre's performers, such as this one of the clown and dancer Cha-u-Kao. #dance
