Lunch with Degas
Michael Flohr has been inspired to capture the rich history of New Orleans in past works as it brings back fond memories of his honeymoon. Flohr and his muse, wife Melissa, have found the old city to be a great source of inspiration as its artistic heritage has remained intact throughout its many trials and tribulations.
Lunch with Degas celebrates the creative artistry found amongst friends, the kind of friendships that the great Impressionists Degas, Monet, Seurat, Renoir, and others like them shared. An ordinary afternoon with good friends becomes an extraordinary day filled with culture, cuisine, and stimulating conversation. Reflections of light from floor to ceiling are masterfully recreated through Flohr’s own Impressionistic precision. He captures a superior sense of color, depth, reflection, and luminosity as hues of rich color dance across the starched white linen tablecloths. With napkins neatly folded, this French Quarter café’s protocol is one of elegance and etiquette. A great masterpiece hangs high above the commotion of fine crystal and amusing dialogue. As a picture speaks a thousand words, it is as if the great master Degas has joined the conversation.
