More About this Item


Description: Artist: HENRI DE TOULOUSE-LAUTREC (1864-1901) Size: 23 3/4 x 31 in./60.4 x 78.6 cm According to Adriani, "May Milton was an English dancer with a pale, serious face and strong chin who appeared at the Moulin Rouge.” Toulouse-Lautrec is almost brutally frank in depicting her face, neither pretty nor youthful, and pointing out the inappropriateness of the white debutante's dress with puffed sleeves which she wore on stage. Yet the point is made with such gentle irony that it may have been missed, or ignored, by the performer herself, as she apparently used the poster for personal publicity.
