‘Tango Bar’ by Beryl Cook ┬áRead the story behind this painting here:

Black and white floor tiles are popular in the bars here, and this is a little one we were taken to by a guide. It was empty, but a man magically appeared with an accordion while the manager busily poured us drinks. He then took up a microphone and sang a few songs from a book, finishing off by dancing with a little old lady who had arrived in the doorway. All this frenzied activity a few feet away from us had made me nervous, but just as I started to shake with laughter many more customers arrived, including these toe dancers, and everything settled down.
