engraver and watercolourist, known for his depictions of Parisian life and landscapes of the French countryside and beaches.

Adrion was especially appreciated for his crowded scenes of Parisian life. The critic Galtier-Boissiére wrote about his work, ‘Il a le sense du movement des foules, du movement de la vie (He has a feeling for the movement of crowds, the movement of life).

cabaret the Moulin Rouge located in the Montmartre district in Paris, known for attracting the avant-garde artists, poets and literary anarchists of the day.
