Green, Madeline

1884 – 1947

Famously in 1875, Gill painted the sign that was to suggest the name of the famous night-club ‘La Lapin Agile’. It was a picture of a rabbit jumping out of a saucepan, and locals began calling their neighbourhood night-club “Le Lapin ˆ Gill”: “Gill’s rabbit”. Over time, this name evolved into “Lapin Agile”, or “Nimble Rabbit”. The sign can still be seen outside the night-club in Rue des Saules, Montmartre, Paris.
