Shocking for its day, “Moulin Rouge” is the work of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (1864-1901). When it was first published, it caused a sensation, due largely to its tawdry subject matter. This tapestry depicts the main attraction at the time at Moulin Rouge, a dancer known as La Goulue (The Glutton). The poster’s stylish and flashy look was meant to promote the club itself, which help set the tone for Bourgousie Paris. Lautrec’s distinct style is readily apparent in this piece. The subject’s dancing partner, Valentin le Dessose, is shown in silhouette, a slightly sinister look meant to draw attention to the main attraction, La Goulue. This tapestry is lined at the back and has tunnel for easy hanging. Note: tapestry rod and tassels, where pictured, are not included in the price.
