The world-famous cabaret, founded in 1889, was also renowned for its cancan dancing.  It was immortalized in the famous posters by Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec.  Mistinguett also rose to fame here with Maurice Chevalier.

 Angel of the Month

Author of Angels of Paris - An Architectural Tour through the History of Paris

At the entrance to the lovely Parc Montsouris, a majestic bronze angel seems to stand guard atop a Corinthian column.  Sculptor Jules-Felix Coutan’s 1887 Armed Peace Angel spreads its colossal wings protectively, posing with an elegant swagger as a banner twirls about her. In the early morning November light, we can still see the moon hovering in the sky.

Parc Montsouris, Entrance rue Nansouty and avenue Reille, 14th arrondissement, (Metro: Alésia, RER: Cité Universitaire)
