Joé BRIDGE & Adolphe WILLETTE Banquet de la République de Montmartre au moulin de la Galette


Francisque POULBOT

Banquet de la République de Montmartre au moulin de la Galette

L'Emancipatrice, 5, rue de Pondichéry, Paris 6 novembre 1931, 21x27cm, une feuille.

Rarissime and humorous flyer menu of the "democratic dinner" organized by the Republic of Montmartre newly founded in 1921. The date indicated is a parody of the Republican calendar: "17 Neigôse, An I".
A magnificent original engraving on wood, representing the communards on the hill Montmartre and bearing the monogram "Armand", adorns the first board.

In the spirit of the Paris Commune, the Republic of Montmartre was created in the early 1920s by Parisian artists Joé Bridge, Adolphe Willette, Jean-Louis Forain, Francisque Poulbot, Maurice Neumont, Louis Morin, Maurice Milliere, Raoul Guerin and Jules Depaquit. His parties and banquets, often organized in the mythical places of Montmartre (Moulin de la Galette, Circus Medrano, Moulin Rouge) were intended to weld the Montmartre community by mutual aid and sociability.
This menu is a rare testimony of the beginnings of this joyous and festive organization, which delivers here a very comical banquet where we serve " Times of aristocrats riddled with Julien ", a " Salad of Emigrants " and " Fruits of the Revolution ". It ends with the motto " HI, FRATERNITY, and GOOD APPETITE! "
