The blinding lights, the heat from an adrenaline rush, the clear music overtaking any distracting sounds…when I first viewed the painting Mona Lisa Dances with Poppies, it was anything but “still” to me. Although this dancer is forever attached to a single stand that keeps her from leaping across the floor, and although the table or shelf that she rests on isn’t a stage, this painting evokes a theatrical moment–perhaps a pause…for applause–during an evening of entertainment. It has carried me away.
