The painting "Ball of the Burning Men" by Georges Rochegrosse is a vivid and dramatic depiction of a historical event. In this painting, Rochegrosse captures the chaos and horror of the Bal des Ardents, a masquerade ball at the French court in 1393 where a tragic fire broke out. The scene is filled with richly dressed nobles in a state of panic as flames consume the costumes of several dancers who dressed as "wild men" with outfits made of flammable materials. The luxurious interior of the court contrasts starkly with the terror and confusion of the incident. The artwork is characterized by its dynamic composition, intense emotion, and the artist's detailed and sumptuous rendering of textiles and expressions.
