Toulouse-Lautrec Illustrates the Belle-Époque

The celebrated French artist Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (1864-1901) created works that epitomise the theatricality, elegance, and decadence of late-19th-century Paris. This beautifully illustrated book accompanying a show at the Montreal Museum of Fine Art features a selection of Toulouse-Lautrec's drawings, paintings, and posters, and more than 90 prints, some of which have never previously been published. The works cover the entirety of Toulouse-Lautrec's career, beginning with a drawing completed when he was just 16 years old.

Essays explore Toulouse-Lautrec's life in Paris and the people and places represented in his art, as well as the distinguishing characteristics of this particular selection of artworks. In addition, the catalogue includes a chronology of the artist's life and a full checklist with scientific and technical analysis of the works.

An essential resource for admirers of Toulouse-Lautrec's art.
