Few paintings are as self-revealing as those of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec: full of wit, elegance, and truth. He was a painter of the streets and gutters of Paris of the 1890s. His prints, posters, drawings, and paintings immortalized the city’s Belle Epoque nightlife and dubbed the neighborhood of Montmatre a creative hedonistic hotspot. Within its embrace, he broke all the rules in art and in life. Observe this remarkable artist, a dwarf of a man, monocled; his top hat at his side as he sits at his usual corner table sketching this vivid breath of humanity and whispers to himself, “Ah life – life.”
This program will survey the life and works of the French painter and illustrator, famous for his depictions of the Parisian underworld. Presented by Professor Karri Fritz-Klaus of Cornerstone History Symposium.
