Toulouse-Lautrec and His World at the Flint Institute of Art

from French in Ann Arbor

Toulouse-lautrec
Description

Best known for his art depicting scenes from cabarets, theaters, dance halls, and brothels, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec lived and worked in France. Toulouse-Lautrec and His World features approximately 150 works on paper. While in Paris, Toulouse-Lautrec spent his mornings practicing academic drawing, his afternoons visiting salons and museums, and his evenings frequenting riotous nightclubs such as the Moulin Rouge. Throughout his brief lifetime he produced promotional posters and illustrated theater programs, book covers, menus, and other ephemera. His art was based on the social scenes and experiences that he himself lived through, and his interest lay in portraying people from all walks of life.

Curated at the Herakleidon Museum, in Athens, Greece, this exhibition showcases works rarely seen outside of Europe, with the Flint Institute of Arts being the only Midwestern venue to present this collection. The exhibition features a rare collection of original works on paper, including a number of Toulouse-Lautrec's posters and sketches of famous actors and singers, as well as his friends and working-class Parisians.

THIS EXHIBIT GOES UNTIL DECEMBER 30, 2013

It would be nice to support the city of Flint in the context of French art. Please, check the website for the cost of a ticket.

I am sure that they must know him as he is famous for his work called the Cig Harvey. There are a lot of artists who are influenced by the methods that he created during his time.
