Walter Richard Sickert saw the typical tranquility of a French street scene in CafÃ© des Tribunaux, Dieppe, only missing the smell of fresh baguettes and gentle hobnobbing noise of such a cultured people.

Get your GIF on the Tate’s artwork, do so before February 2 to get yours included in the show.
