This lithographic poster was reproduced in 1983 on the highest quality Arches Paper from the original 1928 poster by Paul Colin's poster for Tabarin. It was Mourlot Studio's Master Printer Yves Melcher, who had worked closely in the past with Colin that worked on this lithograph. It was reproduced by hand on our Voirin 1870's printing presses in Paris.
The Tabarin was a popular nightclub in Paris originally making its reputation with the cancan. It stayed open long after WWI. In the mid-20s dancers infused the club with new life and Colin illustrated changing times using a multiple exposure that conjoined a trio of women doing the cancan, the charleston and a ballroom dance. Colin depicts the energy of Paris during the Jazz Age. Colin was named the most important designer of theater and music hall posters during the French Art Deco period.
