Bal au Moulin Rouge

Bal Moulin Rouge

Perhaps the most famous of all Parisian music halls, the Moulin Rouge, with the distinctive red windmill on its roof, remains the center of the Pigalle Quarter. Considered the home of the Can-Can, and a favorite of great artists including Toulouse-Lautrec, the Moulin Rouge remains the center of Paris night life. Cheret created many posters for the “Ref Mill” including this one for the 1889 Grand Opening. This is the 1899 Affiches Illustrees version, framed.
