Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, ‘The Sacred Grove’, 1884

Toulouse-Lautrec created this work while studying under the painter Fernand Cormon. The painting parodies Pierre Puvis de Chavannes’s “The Sacred Grove Cherised by the Arts and Muses," which was awarded the grand prize at the 1884 Paris Salon.

Lautrec effectively mimics the style and subject matter of the original but makes significant alterations. Notice the clock on the antique portico and the kneeling adolescent in the corner, eating a loaf of bread. The most irreverent anachronism, however, is the group of men disruptively parading into Puvis’s harmonious forest. They include fellow artists, acquaintances, and Lautrec himself, who stands with his back to the viewer - urinating on the ground. (via pearlmancollection)
