Toulouse-Lautrec and La Vie Moderne

This kaleidoscopic presentation is comprised of paintings, watercolors, drawings, rare zinc shadow puppet silhouettes, caricature, illustrated programs for the famous Chat Noir cabaret, and key ephemera for Parisian theaters, circuses, cabarets, and café-concerts, by avant-garde artists from the 1880s to the turn of the nineteenth century who celebrated the liberated spirit. Essays by an international group of curators and scholars discuss topics such as the rebellious French spirit and entertainment and performance in fin-de-siècle Paris. A timeline of historical events and iconic paintings, a map of Paris at the time, and a select bibliography complete this beautifully conceived volume.
