Bal du Moulin Rouge Vintage Poster Fine Art Giclee Print
This is a vintage fine art giclee print featuring a lithograph reproduction of a poster created by artist Jules Chéret for the Moulin Rouge. Jules Chéret was a French painter and lithographer who became a master of poster art. At age thirteen, he began a three-year apprenticeship with a lithographer. Chéret created vivid poster ads for the cabarets, music halls, and theaters such as the Eldorado, the Olympia, the Folies Bergères, Theatre de l'Opera, the Alcazar d'Ete and the Moulin Rouge. As his work became more popular and his large posters displaying modestly free-spirited females found a larger audience, pundits began calling him the ' father of the women's liberation.' Females had previously been depicted in art as prostitutes or puritans, and the Cheréts — as his women were popularly called — were neither. It was freeing for the women of Paris, and lead to a noticeably more open atmosphere in Paris where women were able to engage in formerly taboo activities.
