From Jul 26 2014 to Mar 22, 2015 – The Museum of Modern Art, New York

A preeminent artist of belle époque Paris, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (1864–1901) brought the language of the late-19th-century avant-garde to a broad public through his famous posters, prints, and illustrations for journals and magazines. A cultural nexus, he connected artists, performers, authors, intellectuals, and society figures of his day, creating a bridge between the brothels and society salons of the moment. His work allows entry into many facets of Parisian life, from politics to visual culture and the rise of popular entertainment in the form of cabarets and café-concerts.

Daumier, Steinlen, Toulouse-Lautrec Daily Life – Evian – France



From Saturday 05 February to Sunday, May 8, 2011 – Palais Lumière – Evian Les Bains

Honore Daumier, Theophile-Alexandre Steinlen, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, for the first time are gathered here in a confrontation around the representation of everyday life in Paris. The first was active in the 1820s, the third worked up to his death in 1923. Between the three of them they documented a century of Parisian life, the small trades and the political scandals, the Butte Montmartre and the grand boulevards, the humid closets and the Moulin Rouge. While both actors and spectators, they rub on this turmoil and translate these mutations into images of a society they are living witnesses. The exhibition is divided in two, very logical parts. « Le jour » (The day) presents the humor of the streets and cafes. « La nuit » (The night) digs into the atmosphere of the theatres and brothels. Aside from the nearly 200 oils and drawings, the exhibition shows a wide array of magazines from that time, from Charivari to L’Assiette au beurre: at a time when the written press became a true counter-power, its illustrators have the status of real stars.
