Farandole à Montmartre : Oil Painting. 1906.
In the tradition of the impressionist flaneurs, Chéret attended the dance halls of Montmartre, where the farandole dance proved inspiring to many painters, including Matisse. The lively, follow-the-leader dance involved men and women holding hands while running and skipping along a meandering path. In Chéret's depiction, the winsome dancers appear out of the blue and pink haze, as if emerging out of a dream. Chéret uses expressive brush strokes to imbue a sense of movement and energy, and employs Impressionistic broken colors to bring the scene to life. Not only are his technical skills here beautiful and impressive—the sheer scale of this painting is a rare and unique specimen from his oeuvre.
