Avenue des Gobelins[1] (1925, also known as La Vitrine du tailleur) is a photo by French photographer Eugène Atget. The photo shows three mannequins in a window-shop; one of which is seen to be alive upon close inspection. Inside the shop between the two mannequins there is a man that wears the same clothes as the mannequins, has the same rigid posture. The glass of the storefront reflects the museum of the Gobelins factory.
