Édouard Manet - A Bar at the Folies Bergeres, 1882, The Courtauld Gallery

This is a second, a tiniest fracture of time between the past and the future. It captures much more than a photography could. It does not intend to tell a story, it wants you to feel the warm air inside, smell the mix of spirit and perfume, envy the freshness of the skin, to wish to be there. The impression will bring you your own memories, the story will be yours.
