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'.
