Toulouse-Lautrec - part 4 - graphics




1885 Self-portrait
This is the last of a four-part post on the works of Henri Toulouse-Lautrec, and takes a look at his commercial work.
I spent literally hours writing individual captions for these works but unfortunately the blog programme corrupted and wouldn't allow me to finish the post without starting all over - so in the end I have decided to let the work stand alone - apologies.
Toulouse-Lautrec's posters of the 1890s established him as the father of the modern large-scale poster. His best posters were those advertising the appearance of various performers at the Montmartre cabarets, such as the singer May Belfort, the female clown Cha-U-Kao, and Loïe Fuller of the Folies-Bergère.
Between 1891 and 1899, Toulouse-Lautrec released a total of thirty posters advertising Montmartrois people, places, publications, and performances. Aristide Bruant, May Belfort, and Jane Avril were only a few of the performers portrayed in his works. He also featured such personages as the comedian Caudieux, English singer May Milton, cyclist Jimmy Michael, actress Marthe Mellot, and even the emperor Napoleon in posters during his last decade.
