156: Puppet Show / Eisenstadt Sept 2017


These kids are watching a puppet show, "Saint George and the Dragon". The year is 1963. It is outdoors, in Paris. Alfred Eisenstadt was a photographer for Life Magazine. Lots of organizations publish all-time best-pictures lists. This one always makes the cut. As one who paints from photographs, it makes my job easy when the composition and is so absolutely perfect. Seven miniature portraits of children, on the other hand, is a real challenge.
