Summary

The diva of the Parisian café-concert, Guilbert was portrayed in high and low art throughout the Belle

Époque. Toulouse-Lautrec portrayed the singer in her signature long black gloves and simple satin dress with deep V-neck that accentuated her thin figure and distinguished her from her heavily corseted colleagues. Here, enraptured members of the audience gaze adoringly from balconies and peep from behind the curtain.

Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (1864 — 1901) French post-impressionist artist from the Toulouse-Lautrec count family, master of graphics and advertising posters.
