Toulouse Lautrec. The fleeting world
I have always been in love with the Belle Epoque.. The Moulin Rouge atmosphere .. Music , laughs , sensuality , alcohol ,cigarettes ,painters,singers , lovers ,dreamers ,bohemians.. I consider this to be my things, my people . It’s an inspirational environment to me . When you have nothing to lose you persuade your dreams with passion . “Toulouse Lautrec- The fleeting world “ , at Palazzo Reale introduced me these wonderful figures I am more than happy to introduce you !
The famous singer Yvette Guilbert (1867‒1944) ! A genuine star of Paris ,famous places like the Moulin Rouge and Divan Japonais have seen this singer performe on stage with pale makeup and black gloves..
This is a famous poster realized by in 1981 , a piece of art but also advertising ,the famous cancan dancer ” La Goulue ” and her flexible partner ” Valentine le désossé ” are reproduced as silhouettes dancing , while at the popular French club, Moulin Rouge.
Caudieux’s talents lay as a comic ,Toulouse Lautrec has certainly made him a figure of fun here: he’s shown as an ageing performer, portly and overly made up, mincing across the stage with pursed lips. Caudieux was known as the ‘Human Cannon’ which perhaps explains why Toulouse-Lautrec has chosen to depict him in motion.
One of most famous French can-can dancer , Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec through his paintings gave her popularity , as much that half a century later, the semi-fictionalized character was reinterpreted by Nicole Kidman in Moulin Rouge!
