Biographical/historical: Plate 11 from Charles Vernier's La Rigolbochomanie, a collection of satirical cartoons that took its title from the Parisian furor over the dancer Mademoiselle Rigolboche. Called the "queen of the cancan" by dance historian Ivor Guest, she was perhaps better known for her scandalous antics than for the refinement of her dancing.
Biographical/historical: The French printmaker and painter Charles Vernier was particularly famous for his caricatures and cartoons, many of which were published in the satirical journal Le charivari.

Extent: 1 print : lithograph, hand-colored ; 34 x 25 cm.
Description
A young woman in a knee-length dress and long plait dances before two top-hatted men in evening clothes. The well-dressed crowd in the background and the glimpse of a chandelier indicate that the scene takes place in an elegant gathering place, perhaps a ballroom or the foyer of a theatre.
