In the Limelight: Toulouse-Lautrec Portraits at The Bruce Museum

September 23, 2017 – January 7, 2018. New Exhibition at The Bruce Museum:

 In the Limelight: Toulouse-Lautrec Portraits from the Herakleidon Museum.

An artist who enjoyed the spectacle, the nightlife, and the tawdry side of Belle Époque Paris, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec is most well-known for his pictures of the café-concert and the entertainers that performed there. This exhibition focuses on the artist’s portraits of entertainers, the people who became icons of the Parisian nightlife, and explores the relationship between portraiture, caricature, and rise of the cult of celebrity in the late 19th century.

The Bruce Museum is located at 1 Museum Drive. Learn more here.
