storytelling "Of all the female entertainers Lautrec celebrated in his posters, Jane Avril and Yvette Guilbert were the two with whom he maintained the longest friendships. He portrayed them both together in one of his most brilliant posters, Divan Japonais. Although Guilbert was the performer at this rather shabby cabaret when it opened in the spring of 1893, Lautrec made the half-Italian Avril the focal figure in his composition. Under a shock of red-orange hair topped with a pagoda-shaped hat and towering plume, her black, silhouetted figure dominates the frontal plane as she assumes a regal pose and an attitude of hauteur. Neither she nor her companion, Edouard Dujardin, the distinguished founder of the Symbolist Revue Wagnerienne, deign to look at Guilbert on stage, whom Lautrec has portrayed as acephalous, probably as a witty response to her complaint that he carucatured her and made her ugly "
