TOULOUSE-LAUTREC ILLUSTRATES THE BELLE EPOQUE

HILLIARD GOLDFARB    Book Number: 88502    Product format: Paperback

A big, rare exhibition catalogue published by Yale University Press with Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, 2006 first edition softback. The celebrated French artist Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (1864-1901) created works that epitomised the theatricality, elegance and decadence of late 19th century Paris. This beautifully illustrated book features paintings, posters and more than 90 prints, some of which have never been published before covering the entirety of his career, beginning with a drawing completed when he was just 16 years old. The stunning images are accompanied by essays that explore his life in Paris and the people and places represented in his art, distinguishing characteristics, and the catalogue includes a chronology of his life and full checklist with scientific and technical analysis of the works. Rarities include a trial proof of Moulin Rouge, La Goulue and the extremely rare The Hanged Man as well as very unusual prints (trial or proofs) for Queen of Joy, May Milton and May Belfort, and for the famous poster Jane Avril. Meet characters like the female clown, a woman fastening a corset, and splendid reproductions in huge full page like the Tournée du Chat Noir. Mostly pictorial, 120 colour illus, 128pp, 24 x 31cm. Softback.
