My favourite painting is from a french artist, who lived from 1984 to 1917.

It's a very beautiful painting of a ballet class. You can see a a lot of ballet dancers in tutus costumes, with yellow red a black bowes and ballet shoes. The girls are rehearsing and playing atention to the teachers' explications. It's lovely.
