Moulin Rouge Lithograph after Toulouse-Lautrec
Color lithograph on wove paper after Toulouse-Lautrec. From the 1896 Affiches Illustrees version of Lautrec’s most famous poster. A fine example in red, yellow, blue, and black. This is Toulouse-Lautrec’s most famous poster image. Lifetime impression.
Transcribed in 1896 from Lautrec’s 1891 full size, tall poster designed to publicize the famous Moulin Rouge in Montmartre, a poplular place for music, shows, and dancing. The original poster charted a bold new direction in posters and was very popular in Paris. In this scene, the popular dancer La Goulue (the glutton) performs the can-can with her limber partner Valentin Le Desosse (the boneless). This image was published in Les Affiches Illustrees, a collection of small format poster images for collectors. This series was published in 1896 by Imprimerie Chaix and printed by Imprimerie Eugene Verneau in Paris. Edition Size is 1,025. Many of these have not survived in good condition; many have not survived at all.
