Jane Avril was the stage name of Moulin Rouge star Jeanne Beaudon. She became known as La Mélinite for her powerful form of explosive dance. Her fame was assured by the exotic persona and alluring style captured in a series of dazzling posters designed by her loyal friend Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, including this one in 1899.
