This is a copy of Kees van Dongen’s Les Danseuses. I painted it for a color matching assignment from a class I took at Salt Lake Community College. Per the assignment I tried to accurately reproduce the colors. I wasn’t as concerned with matching the proportions or brush strokes of the original. The original has Kees van Dongen’s signature in the lower right corner and is x x x size. I worked from a Sotheby’s auction catalog. The image in the catalog was about 9? x 12?. I haven’t been able to locate an official image of the original on the web. When searching for the original I usually find my version.
