Henri Rousseau painting titled A Centennial of Independence

The photograph that serves as the basis for this hidden figure game is a photograph that we took in Paris several years ago. It is a view of the Moulin Rouge in Montmartre, in Paris. It was an establishment frequented by artists during the late 19th Century, most-notably Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. While we don't have any formal record of Henri Rousseau attending any shows at the Moulin Rouge, his home and studio in Montparnasse were not that far away, and it is known that Rousseau visited Picasso in Montmartre, so it's not impossible to think he might have been in the vicinity of the Moulin Rouge at some point. Nevertheless, with some creative liberties and for the sake of this arts game, we've hidden Rousseau's drummer figure in 10 different places in the photograph below.
