Bar at the Folies Bergere, 1882 by Edouard Manet.

This was my Mom’s favorite painting. She’s always on my mind, but especially since the holiday season is approaching I’m thinking of her. Growing up, we couldn’t afford much but once in a while she took us to The Art Institute of Chicago and we saw this painting there. Now whenever I see this or any of Manet’s paintings, I think of her like a sign that she’s thinking of me too.
