Mistinguette- Moulin rouge – Paris

mistinguett

Inspired by a black and white vintage photo from “the Roaring  Twenties “, I decided to make a colourful portrait and name it “Mistinguett”.

Starting in 1907, Mistinguette dropped the final ‘e’ and became Mistinguett ‘the woman with the divine legs.’ She performed the Apache Dance with Max Dearly in 1909 and then both created spectacular revues one after another for almost 30 years, with feathers, tinsel, glitter and chorus girls and boys. A concept which still rules at the Moulin Rouge!
