Lecture

February 1, 2017, 6:30 pm

Dr. Hilliard Goldfarb, Senior Curator–Collections at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts and one of the curatorial organizers of Toulouse-Lautrec Illustrates the Belle Époque, explores Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec’s lithographic career. Dr. Goldfarb will discuss works such as the artist’s first famous poster and printed work, Moulin Rouge, La Goulue (1891), as well as one of his last major works in the medium, Jane Avril (1899). Inspired by Japanese woodcuts and works by his French contemporaries, Toulouse-Lautrec pushed the medium to new, dramatic possibilities.
