There’s a pretty gargantuan art show going on in the Netherlands right now, called TEFAF (The European Fine Art Fair). It boasts an absolute ton of sales, and God willing, a solid array of eligible bachelors with money to burn.

This Renoir piece, Au Bord de L’eau, was a showcase work of a particular art dealer, Simon Dickinson. Dickinson wants to make sure you know it was owned by two of the most successful Impressionist art dealers of the time, and then left to the Philadelphia Museum of Art. More on its provenance here.

I’d describe it myself, but any time I hear the words “Philadelphia” and “art,” I get actually sick to my goddamn stomach because I think of the PEW, Barnes, and LIES.
