In 1889, during the Belle Époque era, Joseph Oller and his business partner, Charles Zidler, opened the Moulin Rouge (the red mill), a cabaret in the Montmartre district where upper-crust Parisians could escape the city and enjoy a riveting new dance — the can-can. We will explore the Moulin Rouge history and its impact on society, art and literature. We examine the works of Toulouse-Lautrec, discuss his fascination with Jane Avril, and learn about other artists who found inspiration in the decadence and grandeur of the Moulin Rouge. bring your lunch!
