Description: Artist: HENRI DE TOULOUSE-LAUTREC (1864-1901) Size: 13 1/2 x 18 1/2 in./34.3 x 47 cm "The Montmartre chansonnier turned restauranteur, Aristide Bruant, was a strong, imposing personality, and in the several posters of him Toulouse-Lautrec conveys this by letting him dominate the picture completely, with virtually nothing else to distract our attention, and with Bruant's characteristic red scarf, hat and walking stick adding impact to the image ... this design was seen by Bruant as a masterpiece, but the manager of the Ambassadeurs rejected it as too brutally frank and unflattering; the only way the performer could get it accepted was by warning the manager that he would not appear on stage unless there was a copy on either side of the proscenium, and unless the whole of Paris was plastered with further copies” (Wine Spectator, 46). This is a small format version of Lautrec's famous poster, created as a limited-edition print signed by Bruant to be sold at his performances. Hand-signed and numbered (79/100).
