The Clownesse Cha-u-kao was a friend and model of artist Henri de Toulouse Lautrec. She was notorious in Paris for her acrobatics and performed at the Moulin Rouge, among other ‘seedy’ venues. Although she entertained male clients, she was a very public lesbian, and her sauciness is not lost in Lautrec’s many prints and paintings of her.
