What people say about the book
"Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec was one of France's most important figures during the impressionist period. Although a prolific painter, he was considered a greater printmaker, especially in the field of lithography. His prints, posters, and magazine and book illustrations depict life in late nineteenth century Paris ranging from dancehall scenes to the private lives of prostitutes to horse racing. This book is the catalogue of an exhibit highlighting over one hundred of his most important graphic pieces. After a brief biography, the works are thematically discussed and reproduced(the café concert, performers on stage, brothel life, creative circles, and other joie de vivre scenes). Some of the most recognizable works include portraits of Jane Avril, "Le Divan Japonais", "The Jockey", and selections from his "Elles" series. However, I found the prints in the fourth section the most interesting. This chapter highlights a number of theater programs, illustrations from literary journals, and lithograph advertisements publicizing popular books. I didn't know how involved the artist was with theater producers, publishers, and writers until I saw the exhibit. A major bonus is the inclusion of the poster of a group of can can dancers which is large enough to frame. The text is informative and I strongly recommend it if you want to learn more about this aspect of Toulouse-Lautrec's artistic career."
