"Dance, kiss anyone you like" at the Louvre Museum, Lens.

Louvre Lens, La Balançoire, Francisco de Goya, Madrid Museo del Prado. it's now february 2016 PLUME VOYAGE. @plumevoyagemagazine-©-Madrid Museo Nacional del Prado

The song "Dance, kiss anyone you like" was created in 1753

by Madame de Pompadour or adapted by her from a medieval text evoking the ban on prostitutes to exercise their art of seduction in the woods. The song invited these ladies to work in shacks indicated by a laurel branch. The song urges the visitors to sweep out of hand the austerity of the reign of Louis XIV, to follow the joys of Regency. One way to get in the eighteenth century with a gallant feast under the auspices of Antoine Watteau.
Until the 29th of February.
