A spark of memory

As the composition of yesterday's photograph came together and formed itself in my camera's viewfinder, it instantly brought to mind a painting--one that I had absolutely no idea that I still remembered--seen in a book years ago. Not only are the composition's similar, the painting's title involves a firework falling, much as firework sparks are falling in the photograph.

Here is the painting.

A gold star goes to any reader who can identify the name of the painting.

(A hint: Even if you have only a passing acquaintance with art, you may well recognize the name of the artist, although he is better known for another, less colorful work.)
