Toulouse-Lautrec and the Stars of Paris

Date: Jun 12, 2019
Time: 7:30 PM
Location: Bernardsville Library

Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec is popular for his bold paintings and prints that perfectly capture the racy spirit and seedy side of late 19th-century Paris. This talk by Vivian Gordon, art historian and long-time lecturer in the Education Department at The Metropolitan Museum, will focus on some of the entertainers and habitués of bohemian Montmartre befriended by Lautrec and immortalized through his art. Lautrec’s new stars of Paris—precursors of those made famous in today’s celebrity culture—are now featured in a major exhibition at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts (April 7-August 4). Free.
