The postcard photograph of the Moulin Rouge dates around 1900 and went through the mails in 1910. A popular topic then, I would think. Have a ball at the Moulin Rouge!!! Below is a short youtube video titled Moulin Rouge at Sunset by MXSmanic Productions. Thank you for a splendid look at the Moulin Rouge MSXmanic!
Everyone has heard of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, the very very famous French Impressionist painter and lithographer, and some might have seen his paintings in Museums the world over. In Chicago at the Art Institute, they have a very nice interior view of his famous hang out, the Moulin Rouge Cabaret.
Some of you surely have seen this famous poster (above) designed in 1891 perhaps at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. This famous one depicting a female cabaret dancer raising her skirt at the final Can-can during the nightly ball held at the Moulin Rouge which opened in 1889. How close can we come today to the Moulin Rouge?
