As the brassy dance hall and bustling drinking garden of the Moulin Rouge unveiled its grandeur on the boulevard de Clichy in 1889, Toulouse-Lautrec's artwork found its place near the entrance, captivating the visitors. In no time, he himself became an unmistakable presence within the establishment, eventually receiving a commissioned task that would launch his career in postermaking and propel him to overnight fame. With his six-foot-tall advertisement, he skillfully directed a spotlight onto the lively dance floor of the nightclub, highlighting its star performers—the mesmerizing "boneless" acrobat Valentin le Désossé and the vivacious La Goulue, famously known as "the glutton," whose cancan skirts gracefully lifted during the grand finale of the chahut.
