Moulin Rouge dancer Jane Avril rejected this poster created by artist Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. It was based on an existing publicity photo which showed her in a similar costume and in an almost identical pose. . #bbc #bbcarts #toulouselautrec #poster #posterart #cabaret #moulinrouge #dancer #janeavril .

The Cannes Film Festival has unveiled its official poster for this year’s 71st edition, featuring an image from Jean-Luc Godard’s 1965 film “Pierrot le Fou.”
The poster, designed by 27-year-old graphic designer Flore Maquin, is inspired by the work of French stills photographer Georges Pierre and features “Pierrot le Fou” stars Jean-Paul Belmondo and Anna Karina.
The new poster shows Belmondo and Karina leaning out of their cars to share a kiss. The two play lovers on the run who settle for a time on the French Riviera, which is also where the Cannes Film Festival takes place.
