I have not seen any, but Lautrec did some paintings of the place and the people there.

It was built in 1800 and still was open for business. Internet may have more info.

Hmmm, I don't read newspapers and barely watch TV when I'm in Asia, so no, I didn't know about it. And it would certainly not make the headlines in Thailand , what with the hookers, ladyboys and their mugged customers keeping us entertained on the news .

Re: People in China

So, besides a vision of many artistic styles and techniques, we also get an armchair view of global customs and practices. Wow, it doesn't get any better than this! Here's my addition to the pot:

ps: Silvia's Domino Players looks like a reinactment of Cezanne's Card Players, no?

Funny you would say that. That's exactly what I was thinking when I took that picture (although I didn't know which painter had painted that one).

Here's my pale imitation, using Impressionist and Match Color.

That little boy is so sweet Sylvia!
I went for the bride.
Started out as AHB and then veered off from there.

Re: People in China

Great job, Sylvia. I gave that one a try too. I used Topaz and Snap Art Watercolor.
