At The Moulin Rouge: The Dance, 1890 Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. The Moulin Rouge was a glitzy nightclub that opened in 1889. There was a dance hall and an art gallery inside, and outdoors a garden with sideshows, a shooting gallery, a fortune teller, and a troupe of tame monkeys! A huge circus painting by Lautrec hung in the entrance hall. Outside, red lights decorated a windmill, creating the effect of flames when the arms turned. The carnival atmosphere of the Moulin Rouge attracted people from all walks of life, making it one of the most fashionable places to go in all of Paris. Crafted in 100% microfiber.
