I took this picture from the Facebook page of artist Fabian Perez. It is called Nomades III and I think he is in a Gypsie/Bohemian creative mood these days, if the painting is recent. Anyway, Bohemians seem to be one of his (new?) pet subjects. Like he did with the bordellos, he glamorized the Nomadic life, here the practice of chiromancy by two femmes fatales being at the center of the frame. They could belong to the universe of Carmen, either the opera or the novella. In fact, I wonder if this is not Perez's take on the character of Carmen. One of these two women could be her.
