DESCRIPTION:  The main attraction in Chilperic was the bolero, danced by Marcelle Lender as Galaswintha at the court of King Chilperic. It was not so much the flimsy plot of this medieval farce as the actress, who had been appearing mainly at the Theatre des Varietes on the Boulevard Montmartre since 1889, who led Lautrec to sit through the operetta nearly twenty times. Always watching from the same angle, from one of the first tiers on the left, he would lie in wait with his sketch pad. His companion, Romain Coolus, finally went on strike after seeing the operetta so many times, and demanded to know the reason for such unusual persistence. Lautrec maintained that he was only interested in Lender’s entrancing back. ‘Look at it properly, you won’t find anything to equal it!’

A very fine impression. In excellent condition.
