Oh Mother !

By Paree
the image was inspired by a book I am reading at the moment,
about a lady trying to get her daughter a job dancing at the Moulin Rouge
not realising exactly what it was....

Moulin Rouge opened October 1889
quickly gained a reputation for being the place where men could view young Parisian girls whose unique and amazing dance moves were as flexible as their morals. And though the famous Can-Can dance had been present in working class ballrooms since the 1830s, the early days of the Moulin Rouge cemented its popularity, though during the first few decades that the establishment was open, it was little more than a bawdy dance performed by courtesans to entertain their male clientele. At times it
was downright vulgar and what went on inside the Moulin Rouge caused much public outrage. During this time period, one of the music hall's most notable patrons was artist Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, who painted a number of famous Moulin Rouge scenes.

beautiful work.. its the same girl but mind takes them as three different.. thats perhaps because the magic created between them and in them renders them all in different atmospheres..
