The Moulin Rouge, Paris

I’ve never been to a performance at the Moulin Rouge, and it is unlikely I ever will go.  Nevertheless, on my recent trip to gay Paree, I took a guided tour through the area of Montmartre and this is where we started.

It threw me right back to late 19th century French painting, especially with Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec.  How I do love his posters of this genre!  Before I add some of them, please enjoy these candid shots taken on a cold December morning in 2018.
