Parce Domine by Adolphe Willette

Published March 17, 2013 by Jill London



Have been meaning to post this beautiful picture by Adolphe Willette (30 July 1857– 4 February 1926), a French painter, illustrator, caricaturist, and lithographer, which I found at Isn’t it divine? It’s a Parisian scene (notice the Montmartre windmill) depicting what looks to be a wild game of follow-the-leader. The picture is on display at the Musee de Montmartre if you’re lucky enough to be heading to Paris any-time soon.
