In this wonderfully dynamic painting, two dancers are seen performing a spirited dip. The male holds his partner’s waist as she arches backwards, her hair falling behind her. She wears beige heels and a short black dress, exposing her long sleek legs. Her right leg supports her as her left leg bends at the knee—allowing her to fully surrender to the dance. Her partner stands with legs wide. He supports the weight of her body while gazing passionately toward her face. Are the two lovers? If not, one could only imagine the sexual tension that fills the air between them as they perform such sensual movements.
The title of this tango dance painting is Lost in a Moment of Passion.
