Provenance: a private
This spontaneously drawn
lithograph represents a colourful scene at the Moulin Rouge cabaret
, with the dancer in the foreground set against a gallery teeming
with the local nightlife.

and Pouillon (p. 22), only a few impressions were signed by the
artist: "seules quelques épreuves ont été
ultérieurement signées par l'artiste."
