2017 Orsay: Henri-Camille Danger 1901 Fléau!

Henri-Camille Danger: Scourge, 1901

Henri-Camille Danger: Scourge, 1901.
If real­ism had been an rar­ity in 1850, this might have been such in 1901. I wouldn’t rate it as a mas­ter­work, but surely as an eye­c­atch­er. Great fun must Danger (what a name!) have had with the archi­tec­ture: Filling in one tiny folly after anoth­er, each one ever more ana­chron­ist­ic in rela­tion to the oth­ers. Is it too over­loaded? Quite, but in a still enter­tain­ing way.
