 The Art of the Moulin Rouge
Welcome to the rich and storied world of the Moulin Rouge. Experience its art like never before with The Art of the Moulin Rouge.

Through the ages, artists of all kinds have been attracted to the vibrancy and vivacity of the Moulin Rouge. Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec found inspiration in the Cancan and the impertinence of La Belle Epoque or “The Beautiful Era” that was late 19th-Century Paris. During the 1920s, Mistinguett, the “Queen of the Dance Hall” played muse to the young sketcher Gesmar.

Since then, artists have continued to produce hundreds of paintings, prints, posters, and drawings that capture life as a performer in one of the most iconic venues in the world. Fans of Toulouse-Lautrec and the Moulin Rouge will enjoy The Art of the Moulin Rouge.

Filled with coloring pages, dot-to-dot puzzles, and color-by-number templates based on the theatre’s most famous posters and program art, coloring enthusiasts will enjoy adding their own unique spin to these legendary and symbolic works of post-impressionism.

Following a brief introduction to color theory and ideas for working in different color mediums, present-day artists will embark on a creative journey through time to celebrate the lush lifestyles that epitomize Parisian culture as seen through the portals of the storied Moulin Rouge. Thirty full-color Moulin Rouge postcards are also included in this beautiful book.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review- So beautiful you do not want to rip out the pages, for the postcards or really even write in it, however it is fun for any age to enjoy.  Each page is printed on a good thick paper and the postcards can even be mailed out.
