Historical Context:
The Montmarte neighborhood was Paris's intellectual and artistic community in the late 1800s. Montmartre had a thriving bohemian culture that was driven by its critique of decadent society.In the Café-concerts and cabarets the reoccurring theme was mocking the corrupt politics of the French government. Cabarets were extremely popular with artists, who sought artistic inspiration from their celebrated performances. The original artwork is from the From the Robert L. Hoskins and Erwin A. Raible Collection of Fin de Siécle French Prints, Gift of Elaine Rutowski Shay.
