Impressionist Master meets Fairground kitch

The influence of 20th century Masters on popular culture is epitomized in this Fairground Roundabout decoration, where Ronoir's painting is adorned with light bulbs and set into a wedding cake style, pastel painted, sculptured frame.
The mouldings look totally Disney kitch but the Roundabout is in fact early 20th century.
