From the end of the 19th to the early 20th centuries, Paris went through two completely different periods: end-of-century decadence and the apolaustic Belle Epoque. In 1881, “Le Chat Noir” (French for “The Black Cat”), an entertainment house, opened in Montmartre, and it became a base for a group of rising artists called the “Incohérents.”

Including around 200 works, this exhibition introduces the avant-garde art that was cultivated at Le Chat Noir, and includes paintings, posters and photographs of shadow plays staged at the cabaret; till June 5.
