Folies-Bergère / Le Roi s’ennuie. 1890.
The King... is bored. The court is bored. This lady in gold should liven things up! A long-standing theatrical and literary conceit, the bored monarch in need of new entertainment has appeared in endless forms since the 18th century. Here, it allowed the Folies-Bergère to create an elaborate ballet and pantomime, lively showgirls included. This is the smaller format.

Price: $1200
