In the Limelight: Toulouse-Lautrec Portraits from the Herkleidon Museum

With his genius for caricature, linear style, and bold use of color, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec bridged the gap between graphic design and fine art, distilling the spirit of fin-de-siècle Paris in enduring images that are now among the most familiar legacies of that era. In the Limelight: Toulouse-Lautrec Portraits from the Herakleidon Museum explores how his depictions of Sarah Bernhardt, Jane Avril, and other celebrated entertainers of the day served as social commentary. The 100 drawings, prints, and posters also include portraits of his friends and family.
