Additional Information: Original color lithographic poster, In this rare original 1920s poster, Rougemont captures the flamboyant spirit of the famous French actress and singer, Mistinguett seen with her wrists full of jewels, wearing suspenders and smoking a cigar as she charismatically struts her stuff showing off those long legs that she was best known for. At the time this full-size poster was printed, circa 1927, Mistingett was known as the Queen of the Music-Hall with top billing at the Moulin Rouge. She was the most popular French entertainer of the time and the highest paid woman entertainer in the world; quite an accomplishment for a young girl who began her career selling flowers in her home town and then went on to work as a stage-hand at the Casino de Paris.
