Product Description:
Moulin Rouge brings to mind the decadent, bohemian age of courtesans, can-can dancers, and cabarets in 1890s Paris. The toast of Moulin Rouge was a flamboyant can-can dancer named La Goulue (The Glutton). La Goulue is considered the creator of the French can-can, but she will forever be remembered as a favorite subject of Post-Impressionist artist, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. Commissioned by the Moulin Rouge to create a series of posters, Toulouse-Lautrec featured dancers and patrons enjoying themselves in the most provocative, scandalous setting of the day. Influenced by Japanese art, Toulouse-Lautrec painted his posters using the Japonisme style. His raw, wild scenes featuring the seedy Paris nightlife was often imitated by many of his Impressionist friends, including Pablo Picasso. This video focuses on two of his most intriguing pieces, a pair of large panels that La Goulue requested for her booth at a Paris fair.
