Toulouse Lautrec exhibit @ the Ara Pacis Museum in Romepa0l0
About 170 works of art coming from Budapest Arts Museum, are on display in Rome for a major exhibition on Toulouse Lautrec; the bohémien painter of the second half of the 19th century Paris, that aims to show the life of the artist from 1891 to 1900, just before his death, at only 36 years.
The works being exhibited include rare limited-edition prints, illustrations and posters. Of particular interest are the designs leading to the final images, showing the evolution process behind the printed poster or lithograph.
There is a special section dedicated to Parisian night life, actresses from the Belle Epoque, and horse-racing at Longchamp. It also provides insights into the artist’s personal life and his warm relationship with the dancers who feature in so much of his work.
On until the 8th of May 2016.
