Moulin Rouge La Goulue by Toulouse-Lautrec art print
This print was made by Toulouse-Lautrec to advertise the popular French club, the Moulin Rouge. It depicts the famous cancan dancer La Goulue and her partner Valentine.
Toulouse-Lautrec became something of a celebrity in the Montmartre district of Paris where he lived and worked, relishing the hedonistic bohemian life there. His posters for famous performance venues such as the Moulin Rouge or the Jardin du Paris are some of the most recognisable images to emerge from fin-de-siècle France.
