「Style Inspiration」 Get ready for a real show-stopper! This famous print advertises the cabaret musical "La Revue" by Helene Martini with direction, set design and costume by Michel Gyarmathy. The semi-nude dancer looks directly at viewers, an ombre array of feathers framing her sides. She will be the star of the show at the center of your gallery wall or behind a kitschy bar.

Helene Martini was a dancer who went by the name of "The Countess" and "The Empress of the Night" and later ran Folie Bergere and other night clubs in Paris after winning three million French francs in the lottery.
