"There was nothing to hold the attention in her pale, almost clownlike face, but her agility, her purely English choreographic skill, acquired in the spectacular English pantomimes which abound in troupes of dancing girls, were at the time revolutionary...Jane Avril earnestly took upon herself the tutelage of May Milton. In spite of her support and Lautrec's poster (which was allegedly prepared for an American tour which never materialized) May Milton appeared at the Rue Fontaine for only one winter. Nothing is known of where she had been born or of what became of her. Her fame is entirely due to Lautrec" (Dortu p.113, 115)
