Toulouse-Lautrec Exhibit Opens in England


Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec
The latest exhibit at the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool, England features around 50 fine quality art prints by artist Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. High Kicks and Low Life: Toulouse-Lautrec Prints depicts the glamour and style of 19th century Parisian theatre and daily life, which Toulouse-Lautrec so aptly captures in his graphic works. In contrast to the lively exuberant scenes of the caf├ęs and bars of Montmartre, Lautrec portrays with great sensitivity the extremely private and intimate life of the prostitute in the second section of the exhibition.
