Henri de Toulouse Lautrec, Divan Japonais, color lithograph, 1893, 808 x 608 mm, Herakleidon Museum, Athens Greece.
Henri de Toulouse Lautrec, Eldorado: Aristide Bruant, color lithograph, 1892, 1380 x 960 mm, Herakleidon Museum, Athens Greece.
This exhibition highlights approximately 150 of Toulouse-Lautrec’s rare works on paper including sketches, and some of his iconic posters like Jane Avril, Divan Japonais, and La Troupe de Mademoiselle Eglantine. The included posters are incredibly rare and fragile because as temporary advertisements for a particular show they were not done on quality paper. Some of the works are accompanied by appropriate passages from French literature, photographs, and other objects, in order to help the viewer better understand the atmosphere of that time.
Toulouse-Lautrec & His World is from the collection of Herakleidon Museum, Athens, Greece, www.herakleidon.com
Uma turista não acidental, instruída e experta. Estivemos em Albi, mas infelizmene o Museu Toulouse-Lautrec, no castelo da família, estava fechado para reformas.
Quem está mais imóvel: o guarda ou eu?
