About the exhibition
This special exhibition offers the opportunity to see a major retrospective devoted to the art of the French 19th century artist, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec: his paintings, drawings, posters and prints.You will see his abilities as an acute observer of Parisian life, his skill as a draughtsman, his experimentation in composition and the brilliance of his technical execution in all media, shedding new light on his involvement in Parisian culture. Toulouse-Lautrec: Paris & The Moulin Rouge traces the artist’s career from his earliest works to his extraordinary depictions of the Paris social scene, the dance halls, the café-concerts, the brothels and theatres. This he did in an insightful way, capturing the essence of his Parisian characters and haunts. Toulouse-Lautrec’s subject matter was to become thoroughly modern and he became an influential figure in the evolution of the art of the twentieth century
