Dance in the Moulin de la Galette

Private collection

This is a sketchier version of medium size of the famous painting in the Musée d'Orsay. In almost every detail it matches the larger version. This version was probably made for the home of his friend Victor Chocquet. It was sold in 1990 at Sotheby's in New York for US$ 78.100.000, the second highest price ever paid for a work of art at that date.
