The Students

I have been to a lot of museums and looked at thousands of paintings and photographs, and I have photographed so many people studying art works.  But I have never seen this many people study a painting this close, for as long as they did.  I didn't stop to talk to them, but they appeared to be students.  I shot this from some distance, so I couldn't hear what they were saying.  It was just fun to see these three crowding this painting!  The painting is by Edgar Degas, and is titled "After the Bath." We can only see parts of arms and legs in between the viewers, and it is so strange it makes me laugh.
