More About this Item


Description: Artist: HENRI DE TOULOUSE-LAUTREC (1864-1901) Size: 14 3/8 x 21 7/8 in./36.5 x 52.8 cm Designed merely a few months before his death, this is Lautrec's last poster. At the time, he was living in Bordeaux, where this Students' Ball was to take place. Therefore, while the cast of characters may appear to be from the smoky corners of the Moulin Rouge, they would actually have been slightly tamer, though obviously exotic local stock. In the background, glimpses of a wild clown and a bearded bum can be seen looking on toward the main attraction in this design: an exceptionally well-endowed hussy and her red-nosed cohort. It should be noted that Lautrec was not involved with the printing process, nor did he create the lettering in this fine image.
