318: Kursaal de Genève. ca. 1928
Artist: NOEL FONTANET (1898-1982) Size: 35 1/2 x 50 3/4 in./90 x 129 cm Sonor, Genève Channeling a bit of Paul Colin, this vivacious image by Fontanet promotes the lively nightlife attractions at Kursaal de Genève. This Swiss music hall dates back to the fin-de-siècle, where it hosted the typical bawdy girl shows promoted by the likes of Grün and Chéret, slowly evolving into more of a jazz-fused dancing venue as seen here.
