Original. Mounted on acid free archival linen. Imp. Chaix, Paris A well-loved cabaret personality in Montmartre, Caudieux was a large, floppy ball of a man, shown here with coat-tails billowing behind him as he exits, stage right. As the actor purses his lips in self-satisfaction after what we can imagine to be a fine performance, a hollow-cheeked audience member gawks curiously up from the orchestra pit. Feinblatt calls this “a study in dynamic motion and concentrated energy . . . and his bustling sweep across the boards is an unparalleled rendering of movement among Lautrec’s posters”
