Jeanne Florentine Bourgeois (1875 – 1956) sold flowers in her hometown of Soisy-sous-Montemorency before performing as the better known, Mistinguett at iconic French performance venues such as Casino de Paris, Folies Bergere and Moulin Rouge. At an early age Bourgeois dreamed of becoming an entertainer and would practice singing ballads while selling flowers.

Mistinguett was well known for her raunchy and flamboyant performances on the stage. She went on to be one of the highest-paid female entertainers of her era.

During the 1910s it was commonplace for entertainers to create and distribute posters of themselves to spread the word about their upcoming performances. In this poster by G.K. Benda in 1913 for Mistinguett, the performers charm is clear. Mistinguett looks slyly at the viewers of the poster, dressed in a green striped gown meant for the stage. We see the entertainers’ light spirit as she peers along with rosy cheeks, a butterfly decorated cap and her gown flailing upward.

Georges Kugelmann Benda, otherwise known as G.K. Benda was a French artist best known for his poster of Mistinguett in 1913. Unfortunately, there is little information on the artist.

  • If there's anything you want to know about posters, vintage or more modern, there's nothing Mr Ross doesn't know. His open and friendly manner helps one to choose the most suitable material whether for decoration, investment or whatever... I can't recommend him highly enough.

  • Just wanted to say thanks for the poster. You sent it on Thursday and it was delivered the following Monday (nearly quicker than it took us to get home) to our house in Perth, Australia. We have just had it framed. We love it; it goes perfectly with the room.

  • The Ross Gallery has the best selection of vintage posters I have ever seen. Seriously, if you are in the market, they are the people. And, they know everything there is to know about the posters' provenance.
