About the exhibition

Toulouse-Lautrec. The Human Comedy

17 September 2011 - 19 February 2012

Get involved in a wild amusement world of circuses, brothels, cafés and dance halls; a world where urbanities bring their desires into play, regardless of gender and class.

 

The headliner autumn exhibition from the Royal Collection of Graphic Art focuses on Lautrec’s graphic work in which he unfolds a commentary on contemporary life with striking visual effects.

The Marketplace of Culture

The Marketplace of Culture

Posters and advertising. Lautrec understood to simplify and crop the motifs, to send a clear message.

The Sets of Everyday Life

The Sets of Everyday Life

Lautrec’s intimate depictions of life in a brothel are completely devoid of sentimentality.

About the exhibition

The Urban Comedy

In a whirl of sensory input and a liberal atmosphere, the city’s drama of consumption and sexual desire unfolded itself.

The Scene of Entertainment

The Scene of Entertainment

Lautrec lent immortality to a number of the singers, dancers, and actors from Montmartre.

Endgame

Endgame

The circus theme was one of the first scenes of entertainment to attract Lautrec. Shortly before his death, he returned to the ring.
