    About The Artwork

    Inspired by a trip to Argentina, Beryl Cook made several paintings of couples dancing the tango in bars and on the street. This particular scene takes place in San Telmo, one of the oldest barrios in Buenos Aires. According to Cook, the streets in San Telmo were "full of pavement cafes, and in front of nearly every one a group of tango experts performed for the general entertainment. We found these four in a side street just as we were leaving, so we stopped to have a last look."
