THE ART OF CHAPEAUGRAPHY

The art of Chapeaugraphy dates back to the 1618's and was first created as a performance art piece by a French comedian named Tabarin. His original routine involved using the ring of felt, along with various beards, moustaches and makeup to create a series of ten individual characters in his act. About a hundred years after that, in 1870, a very clever French comedian, Monsieur Fusier, revived the "Exercise of the Hat", also using makeup and wigs to portray around fifteen 'portraits'.
