A poster advertising the revue 'Bruxelles Sans Gène' at the Alcazar Royal, Rue d'Arenberg, Brussels, in 1894. The Belgian artists Duyck and Crespin collaborated from 1887 on designing costumes and posters for revues at the Alcazar and the Palais d'Eté. In this poster, which concentrates on the elegant audience, the Art Nouveau-style lettering of the name of the theatre curves to create an arch above the theatre boxes.
