Part of our Bejeweled Stories series: to make this collection come alive, I wrote the short story, "Tiny Things," about mothers, daughters, birthdays, and memories. This jewel is based on At the Moulin Rouge, by Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, on display at the Art Institute of Chicago.
Legendary nightclub regulars at the Moulin Rouge were some of Toulouse Lautrec's beloved subjects. My FAVORITE part about this painting is the stark green face of singer May Milton, who kind of peeks into the scene, yet she takes it OVER with her green face.
Thank you, darling Sophanista.
