    La Fée des Poupées (Olympia Grand Ballet, 1894). French Ballet Half Grande (31.5" X 48") Jean de Paléologue Artwork.
    Created in 1894 during the height of La Belle Époque in Paris France, this incredible poster was made for the Olympia music hall where the Grand Ballet was performed. This particular show was called The Doll Fairy and the poster, by Pal (Jean de Paleologue) displayed the women from the show is his unique style. The Olympia was opened in 1888 by the owners of the Moulin Rouge and was supposed to showcase performances even more spectacular that those of their own smaller venue. Restoration has addressed chipping and tears in the borders, as well as paper loss and tearing at the top of the poster into the upper image with a tear extending down towards the center. Very Good+ on Linen.

    Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000.
