Description: Artist: JULES-ALEXANDRE GRÜN (1868-1938) Size: 23 7/8 x 32 7/8 in./60.6 x 83.5 cm Imp. Chaix, Paris "At the beginning of 1901 ... the Folies-Bergère presented a ballet pantomime using the standard type of show in four scenes, baptized Napoli.' As usual, the dullness of the plot was surpassed only by its unlikelihood in this instance an aristocrat being seduced by a Neapolitan singer (who ... was a transvestite) (Grün, p. 67). This is the smaller format version of the poster.
