William Tom Warrener was the son of a wealthy Lincoln coal merchant. He studied at Lincoln School of Art and moved to Paris, where he met the leading Impressionist painter Toulouse-Lautrec in 1890 and got to know him well. Both artists often chose their subjects from the dance-halls. This unconventional painting is of a dance called the Quadrille, a revival of the cancan, which was often performed at the Moulin Rouge, just a short distance from Warrener’s apartment in Montmartre.
