Troupe de Mlle Églantine. 1896.
“At the height of cancan’s popularity, dancers formed groups which offered their services as a unit: whether the Troupe de Mlle Églantine was the best of them we don’t know, but it is certainly the only one publicized by the best. Toulouse-Lautrec did it at the request of his friend Jane Avril. From left to right, we see Jane Avril, Cléopâtre, Églantine, and Gazelle. As with his Moulin Rouge poster, he lets the white of the petticoats, punctuated by stockinged legs, do most of the talking, but he also offhandedly gives each girl a distinct character in only a few lines lining their facial expressions” (Wine Spectator, 43).
