Artist: Henri Lautrec (1864 – 1901)
Historical Background: Lautrec’s Moulin Rouge: La Goulue advertisement was posted in Paris in December 1891 and is a flamboyant artwork that draws the audience into an already lively scene inside the Moulin Rouge. It features the famous La Goulue with her skirt and twirling leg in motion, reminding viewers that they could get more of a peek during her alluring dance of the Cancan (which she is credited with creating.) There is no more important poster in poster history period. The full size original hangs in the Musee D’Orsay in the Toulouse Lautrec Room.
