Luis Paret Y Alcazár - Elegant Company Preparing for a Masked Ball

For today's "Ball" selection I will share a work by Spanish painter Luis Paret Y Alcazár. From the information I've gathered, this Rococo-style oil painting was left unfinished, most noticeably in the upper half which features our background, an beautiful interior with ornate columns.

As usual, I'm fascinated by unfinished works; they provide insight into the artist's technique, and occasionally those visable draft lines and unpainted segments make the subject matter all the more interesting. This is painting by Alcazár, the unfinished background above our "elegant company" could signify the adventures which await them at that evening's party. Good times ahead.
