This exhibition offers an intimate glimpse into the artistic spirit of the great 19th-century artist Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. Born an aristocrat, Toulouse-Lautrec created art that was inseparable from his rakish lifestyle. His career lasted just over a decade and coincided with two major developments in late 19th-century Paris: the birth of modern printmaking and the explosion of nightlife culture.
The exhibition consists of eight works on paper- a favorite medium of the artist's- the majority of which come courtesy of collectors Robbie Barnett and Kathy Olsen. Lithographs from lender Dr. Anna Griswold and the CMA collection round out the show.
