This rare JARDIN DE PARIS / LES SOEURS BLAZEK poster advertises an appearance by the Blazek twins.
Rosa and Josepha Blazek were born in Bohemia in 1878. They were joined at the posterior. This early and rare poster illustrates the very beginning of their career. They became quite famous as they toured Europe in the 1890’s. Cheret’s portrait of the conjoined twins is quite becoming.
