"Toulouse-Lautrec: Artist from Montmartre"
2002-10-31 until 2003-01-19
Plains Art Museum
Fargo, ND, USA United States of America

The Plains Art Museum presents the exhibition Toulouse-Lautrec: Artist from Montmartre, October 31, 2002 through January 19, 2003 in the Jane L. Stern Gallery. On Saturday, November 2 from 8 p.m. to midnight, the museum invites people to savor the bohemian nightlife of late-19th-Century Montmartre at the Moulin Rouge Masquerade Party, an exhibition reception. French hors d'oeuvres, music, dancing and the exhibition are part of the event. Costumes are highly encouraged, particularly those from the Moulin Rouge time period.

Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (1864-1901) was the consummate bohemian artist of Parisian nightlife, creating scenes that would later come to define the era and its famed cabaret, the Moulin Rouge. Considered one of the most innovative artists of the late 19th century, Lautrec was at the center of the 1890s printmaking revolution and the beginnings of modern art. This exhibition will highlight the work of this great French printmaker with 38 lithographs and posters and nine drawings. Featured are some of his best-known prints, including Moulin-Rouge-La Goulue, his first lithograph and poster.

The exhibition is divided into five key facets of the famed artist's career: Early Work, Nightlife, Theatre and Music, The Fine Art Print, and Advertising. In order to put the work of Toulouse-Lautrec in context, an additional 31 works from the Krannert Art Museum's (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign) collection will also be shown featuring the work of famed artists such as Honoré Daumier, Jules Chéret, and Pierre Bonnard.
