Description

In Paris, Rivière built a shadow theater in the Chat Noir cabaret, a focus for Parisian avant-garde art and entertainment in the 1890s. Silhouettes made of zinc were moved across a screen placed in front of a light source. The plays that Rivière produced for the shadow theater were reproduced as songbook illustrations conceived as layers of silhouettes.
