YVETTE GUILBERT. - Grand Concert Parisien. Rentree de M. Bonnaire ... Debinons le Truc ... Distribution: Rentre d' Yvette Guilbert ...

n.p. [Paris? 1890?]. 44x33cm, woodcut or engraving? in red, black and blue on thin crepe paper (chirimen). Old folds and a few small holes; pretty good for something so vulnerable. ¶ Japonisme rampant in this most impractical programme and I'm not sure why; why are the martial artists at the bottom there? They don't seem to be part of the performance. The influence of Japanese art on the artists busily painting Guilbert - Lautrec, Cheret, et al - is obvious but this owes more to Hasegawa's Kobunsha books. Those fighters certainly look to be drawn or cut by a Japanese artist. Debinons le Truc was the revue of 1890 and I found a review of music halls in 1891 mentioning seeing Clovis on the bill with Yvette Guilbert the previous winter. At the very bottom are advertisements for the troublesome anti-clerical journal 'La Lanterne' and Beaubigny's eaux-de-vie. Music hall, booze and atheism, a diabolic trio.
