The Paris of Toulouse-Lautrec

On View

March 10, 2017 — June 18, 2017

Located in

Past Exhibition

Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec’s radical, bold, and often outrageous posters share the spotlight with his sketches and illustrations in our Spring keynote exhibition.

One of Paris’ key post-Impressionist artists, Toulouse-Lautrec frequented the city’s many entertainment establishments, including the popular Moulin Rouge.

Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Aristide Bruant dans son cabaret

Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, La Troupe de Mademoiselle Eglantine
Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, (French, 1864–1901), La Troupe de Mademoiselle Eglantine (Mademoiselle Eglantine's Troupe), 1896. Lithograph, sheet: 24 1/4 x 31 1/4 in., The Museum of Modern Art, New York. Gift of Abby Aldrich Rockefeller, 1940. © The Museum of Modern Art, New York. Photograph by Thomas Griesel.

He was commissioned to produce posters promoting new Cafe-Concerts, groundbreaking performers like Jane Avril, and audacious impresarios like Aristide Bruant. Like many Parisian artists Toulouse-Lautrec drew inspiration from the Japanese prints being exported to Europe, which offered new ways of looking at the world, and a selection of these works are on display in a companion exhibition.

The Paris of Toulouse-Lautrec: Prints and Posters from The Museum of Modern Art is organized by Sarah Suzuki, Curator, Department of Drawings and Prints, The Museum of Modern Art, New York.

This exhibition is organized by The Museum of Modern Art, New York. For more information, see our press release or these features from the Daily PressVirginian-Pilot, or WVEC.

A companion exhibition inside these gallery walls looks at what inspired the French artists of this age.
