TOULOUSE-LAUTREC AND THE ART OF THE FRENCH POSTER

This exciting and ground-breaking show recreates much of an exhibition held in London in 1894 in which the work of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (1864-1901) featured prominently. The original London show highlighted the fashion for poster art in Paris in the late nineteenth century and focused on larger-than-life images by Jules Chéret, Toulouse-Lautrec and other contemporary designers.

From the late 1880s onwards the poster had come of age as an art form, largely due to the development of modern colour lithography - the printing of large coloured images on a lithographic press. This led to an explosion of imaginative 'high class' adverts, for every day products, using coloured images created by some of the greatest artists alive. The exhibition stresses the role of Toulouse-Lautrec by including a section devoted to his work as a general printmaker, as well as examples of the work of Alphonse Mucha (1860-1939) and other non-French artists, to show the variety of work in Paris at the time.

A partnership with the Victoria and Albert Museum and the Bowes Museum.
