English: By Pierre-Auguste Renoir: Bal du moulin de la Galette (Dance at Le Moulin de la Galette, Montmartre), 1876, in Musée d'Orsay (Paris), oil on canvas, 131 x 175 cm.

There are two versions of this painting (as well as a largely monochrome study in Copenhagen). The larger and better known version is the one in the Musée d'Orsay. A smaller version was held in the Whitney Collection until 1990 when it was sold at Sotheby's, New York, for the then record price of US$78 million. This painting is now believed to be in a Swiss private collection. Other than in size, the paintings are almost identical, one evidently being an exact copy of the other, although the Whitney version is executed more freely. It is not known which was first exhibited, nor even which first painted (Sotheby's auction catalogue 1990).
