The American Loïe Fuller was famous in turn-of-the-century Paris for her dazzling performances which combined dance, colored electric lights, and music. In this print, inspired by her appearance at the Folies Bergère, Lautrec captures the decorative effect of her billowing silk gown, which she manipulated with large poles held in her hands. Lautrec executed about sixty versions of this print in a variety of colored inks, including gold and silver.
