After Henry Ossawa Tanner and William Sidney Mount. I'm starting a new mini series between art and fantasy. My starting point is simple: the characters in the paintings have a life of their own that does not leave indifferent some informed viewers. These imagine, out of empathy, that the music could allow them to enter into a relationship with these fictional characters and enrich their living conditions in the painting. This time, the viewer finds her place between two paintings. Thank you for the view and your comments

A beautifully realised series. The interplay of the musicians and their painted audience is adroitly done. The balance and light here are very appealing.

The choice of Mount's "power of music" results in a multi layered narrative of life imitating art; the black labourer is excluded from the company of the white musicians, despite being drawn to the sound, and the young violinist is separated from her listener in the painting, though her expression shows she yearns to share... And the juxtaposition with Tanner adds another layer, just as he, as black artist experienced discrimination and exclusion until he departed America for France, many black musicians in subsequent decades would do the same (Bud Powell, Sidney Bechet, Kenny Clarke et al)...

Thank you for all these insights that show so much sensitivity. :)
