El Jaleo Enamel Pin

During his travels in Spain in 1879, John Singer Sargent was mulling over a major work of art in which he could express his love of Roma music, dance, and picturesque costumes. On his return to Paris he set to work on a wide horizontal picture whose proportions simulated the shallow stage space of popular musical establishments. He named the painting El Jaleo to suggest the name of a dance, the jaleo de jerez, while counting on the broader meaning of 'jaleo,' which means ruckus or hubbub.
