The Posters of Toulouse-Lautrec at Les Arts Décoratifs
PARIS, FRANCE — Le Musée des Arts Décoratifs, housed in the Louvre Palace, pays homage to the posters of Toulouse-Lautrec in its latest exhibition. The show is a nostalgic celebration of the legendary Belle Epoque, when Montmartre and the Chat Noir were the artistic and entertainment center of the world.
The curators have organised twenty-six of the artist’s thirty-one posters – designed between 1891 and 1900 – under the theme Nouveau Salon des Cent. The posters are placed within the context of new works by one hundred contemporary artists from twenty-four countries, whose pieces were created in 2001 on the occasion of the centenary of Toulouse Lautrec’s death.
Hommages à Toulouse-Lautrec affichiste is currently on view until January 3, 2010.
