    French Cancan (Gaumont, 1955). Very Fine- on Linen. Full-Bleed French Grande (45.5" X 63.25") Style A, Rene Peron Artwork.
    This comedy/drama from Jean Renoir chronicles the revival of Paris' most notorious dance, as it tells the story of a theater producer who turns a humble washerwoman into a star at the Moulin Rouge. This splendid, country-of-origin, French grande features artwork by Rene Peron and brings alive one of Paris' most storied entertainment venues. Restoration has corrected slight edge and fold wear, pinholes, mild creases, and minor tears. There were a couple of chips at the edges as well as two ink censorship stamps in the lower left corner, which are still faintly visible.

    Estimate: $500 - $1,000.

    Please see full-color, enlargeable images above for more details.
