Product description

Paris by night, city of lights. And among these lights, on the hills of Montmartre, one alluring beacon stands out: the Moulin Rouge. This fascinating book takes you back to the heydays of the legendary cabaret, its dancers, its artists and its surroundings. It takes a look at the history of the cabarets in Montmartre, where you meet artists like Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Jules Cheret and even Picasso and stare at stars and legends such as Jane Avril, La Goulue, Josephine Baker, Edith Piaf, Mistinguett and Yves Montand. "Moulin Rouge" takes the reader on a photographic journey through space and time: from the provoking can-can to the burlesque outfits and their influence on past and present fashion, shows and events.
