Elles / Femme au Lit. 1896.
This is part of the Elles series, and is one of 100 impressions. One scholarly interpretation of the Elles suite is that, rather than being simply a collection of brothel motifs, it portrays the domestic life of a lesbian couple, one half of which was the clowness of the Moulin Rouge, Cha-U-Kao. Such a reading gathers likelihood in the knowledge that the publisher, Pellet, favored risqué themes. Here, Lautrec depicts a morning visit between Madame Juliette Baron and her daughter Paulette, known as Mademoiselle Popo, both of whom worked in the brothel in the Rue des Moulins.
