From Musée d'Orsay, Paris:
The cafés-concerts celebrated by Degas and Manet in the 1870s were open-air theatres with makeshift stages. Stars like the singer Theresa accompanied their comic songs with exaggerated gestures. In the 1880s, Seurat's decade, the café-concerts moved indoors and were held in large more or less refined rooms, even in summer. The performances developed into real variety shows which ranged from songs by Yvette Guilbert to the first scantily clad revues. Artificial stage lighting gave artists an ideal opportunity to explore light and shade effects.
