Popular in the U.S. in the early 20th century, the Vaudeville style of entertainment often featured variety shows containing singers, dancers, magic and trained animal acts, and sometimes even bizarre feats for the audience to behold. In this painting, Gilat Ben-Dor has imagined a vaudeville duet performing a song and dance, with a balloon-trimmed dress on the lady, which is historically accurate...and a fun idea for any era.
