One of the world’s most beloved artists, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec documented the glamour and decadence of France’s belle-époque. Best-known for his depictions of young women performing the can-can, Toulouse-Lautrec was a shrewd observer of contemporary French life. Focusing on his prints, this generously illustrated book offers a thematic re-consideration of the artist’s oeuvre. In sections such as "The Human Comedy," "Actors of the Scene," "The Metropolis," and "Circus," the book highlights Toulouse-Lautrec’s keenly perceptive gaze as he explored a variety of settings—circuses, brothels, cafés, and dancehalls—and subjects of both genders and all classes in his work. A radical in his own radical time, Toulouse-Lautrec emerges as a consummate bohemian artist who depicted his contemporaries’ appetite for visual and sensual pleasure.
