Postage Stamp Collage
Based on some of Toulouse-Lautrec’s colour lithographs this piece of one of his favourite models, Jane Avril, combines Jane dancing, 1893, with the background of a Moulin Rouge concert poster 1892. The dancing comprised of the “quadrille naturaliste” sometimes called the ‘can-can’ which had gone out of fashion after the war of 1870 but here was bought to a new and more sensational life in the Moulin Rouge by Jane. This picture is composed of approximately 1800 used postage stamps. The stamp colours are not altered and post marks are still visible on close observation. This picture was created on quality deep edge canvas. It is not framed and should not be displayed in direct sunlight although all canvases are varnished twice and have a coat of U.V. protection.
