The impact of Japanese woodblock prints on advanced art is evident here in the use of broad planes of color, bold silhouettes, and an unusual perspective on the figures: two dancers known as Rayon d'Or (Golden Ray) and La Sauterelle (The Grasshopper), who converse or flirt with Toulouse-Lautrec's friend, the English artist William Tom Warrener.
