Sketching into History

As the Turner Classic movie
The Moulin Rouge began,
the man thought of the old
joke, “It’s Toulouse-Lautrec,
so tighten it up.” And then
he watched the sketching
in the Moulin Rouge catch-
ing the dancers mid-action
for posterity. The dancing
ended and the short-legged
man walked back to his room
and into art history.
