Tuesday, October 17, 2017
Start Time: 7:30 PM
End Time: 9:30 PM
The paintings of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec are almost synonymous with the Montmartre district of Paris at the end of the nineteenth century. In terms of style and content, his work reflected the modernity, spectacle, and decadence of this social milieu. Art Historian Jeff Mishur discusses major works by Toulouse-Lautrec and provides an art historical context for each. He will also relate these works to those painted by other important artists working in Paris during the same period.
