Folies Bergere Helene Martini Cabaret Dancer Erte


Original vintage advertising poster for a show "I love the Folie!" presented by Helene Martini presente J'aime a la Folie! at the famous cabaret music hall Les Folies Bergère in Paris featuring a fantastic pin-up style design by Erte (Romain de Tirtoff Erte; 1892-1990) showing a semi-nude dancer wearing a feathery headpiece swirling down around her elegant body as she holds a large blue fan above her head with the stylised lettering for Folies Bergere on it, against the deeper blue background with the rest of the text down the side. Founded in 1869 and still in business today, the Folies Bergere became popular from the Belle Epoque era in the 1890s to the Roaring Twenties (Les Années folles) and attracted star performers including Charlie Chaplin, Edith Piaf, Josephine Baker, Ella Fitzgerald, W. C. Fields, Frank Sinatra and others; Helene Martini (aka The Empress of the Night; 1925-2017) was a showgirl who managed the Folies Bergere from 1974-2000 (she bought the club in 1977) with the Hungarian set and costume designer Michel Gyarmathy (Miklos Ehrenfeld; 1908-1996); Madame Paul Derval (Antonia Derval / Antonia Marie France Carle) was the wife of theatre director Paul Derval (1880-1966) who took over the management of this Parisian institution after his death before Hélène Martini took over in 1974. Large size. Good condition, cracks, creases and small repaired tears in margins.
