From Sotheby’s:
Au Moulin Rouge is a large scale depiction of the world famous cabaret that captures the bohemian and risqué ambiance of the café-concert in a vibrant, modernist style. Anquetin had begun to frequent the Moulin Rouge shortly after it opened in 1889, and together with his fellow artists Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec and Emile Bernard, became a regular at the cabaret throughout the 1890s. This work is Anquetin's largest and most compositionally complex work on this theme, and also is one of the final works from the distinctive Cloisonist phase of his artistic development.
