Footnotes

  • Extremely rare menu designed for a Christmas stag party for Georges Lasserre, shown on the right with a scantily clad courtesan who is toasting his health with a glass of champagne presumably an H. Mumms 1884 vintage, according to the menu of the 1896 Christmas feast. Lautrec depicts all the party-goers in various states of alcoholic stupor, except the costumed actor, who remains stoically upright.
