In a mock antique triumphal procession, we see, among others, La Goulue (riding on a donkey) and beside her, probably the female clown Cha-u-Kao. Behind them are the two figures who can also be seen on lithograph;AU MOULIN ROUGE, L’UNION FRANCO-RUSSE. The occasion was the autumn gala at the Moulin Rouge to celebrate the Franco-Russian alliance agreed in mid-July 1893, and for which Aristide Bruant wrote his famous song, Vive la Russie; there was a similar revue at the Folies Bergere at the end of the year entited France-Russie. Lautrec wrote sarcastically to his mother on 17 or 24 July 1893 about this political event: ‘Long live Russia!! And curious thing, there’s such a patriotic or international fervour that this 8-day July 14 hasn’t been tiring. Of course, I had to put up with being kept waiting here and there half an hour at a time, but it was a question of the European balance of power and I put a good face on it. The policemen themselves tried to be decent and that’s not saying a little. Anyway, they’re leaving tomorrow [the two Russian Grand Princes], probably tired out.

Condition:
A very fine impression printed in black.
