Fats Domino's Piano

Fats Domino’s White Piano

When New Orleans was devastated by Hurricane Katrina in 2005, Fats Domino’s house was submerged and his Steinway piano remained under water for several weeks. It was later recovered and restored, and can now be seen at the New Orleans Jazz Museum.

The painting, The Daughters of Edward Darley Boit, by John Singer Sargent, reminded me of the famous Las Meninas, by Velázquez. As I was getting my iPhone and asking myself how to break the symmetry of the scene, a person in a red shirt decided to sit down and solved the problem for me. Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
