RA LATE: MOULIN ROUGE CIRCUS LIFE DRAWING!

  • Royal Academy Burlington Gardens Picadilly, London (map)

Art Macabre return to RA for another excitingly themed RA Late event! This time, be transported to the bohemian decadence of 1890s Paris at our end-of-summer party. Think underground café societies, cabarets, can-can dancing, absinthe dens and palatial salons at this end-of-summer party at the RA, inspired by our exhibition, Félix Vallotton: Painter of Disquiet.

With MODELS: SMASHLYN MONROE! TOMMASO DI VINCENZO! J’ADORE LA VIE’s Janet Meyer! MIDNIGHT IRIS!

Our Twisted Circus Drawing Salon will celebrate Moulin Rouge! This spectacular, infamous dancehall opened in 1899 and offered a range of entertainments from circus troupes and clowns, to acrobats and tightrope walkers. The circus was considered a form of artistic expression in 19th-century Paris, offering inspiration for painters of the time.

At this theatrical life drawing class, Art Macabre invite you to draw contemporary circus acts that take inspiration from the Moulin Rouge’s characters and performers, celebrating the physical spectacle and creativity of the circus. Get ready to sketch circus folk! Tickets and more programme info here.
