    Not sure if the uploader reads these comments, but you've got a typo in your description: "aortrait" instead of "portrait".

    On the upper right: a parabolic antenna?
    No serious: this is a great illustration of the Paris art scene, biotope for artists, dancers, musicians and prostitutes...
    Henri Toulouse, where are you?

    @DEWELDEMAN: i think the top right is a reflector for the lights...right infront of that thing is a long bulb right? it looks like it..

    I think the artist you are thinking of is Walter Sickert. The author Patricia Cornwall has recently written a book, entitled Portrait of a Killer: Jack the Ripper Case Closed, which claims Sickert was Jack the Ripper. Here are a few articles you can read if interested:
