Toulouse-Lautrec. ll mondo fuggevole
The exhibition project is split into themes and will invite the visitor to appreciate the fascination and artistic importance of the bohemian painter who, without adhering to any school, knew instinctively how to create a new and provocative realism, an extreme synthesis of form, colour and movement. The author's stylistic evolution, of aristocratic origins but influenced by Paris's decadent life of the ‘urban-underclass’, will be outlined in all its phases, from painting to graphic design, with particular reference to Toulouse-Lautrec’s profound knowledge of Japanese prints and his passion for photography. Over 250 of Toulouse-Lautrec’s works, featuring 35 paintings, along with lithographs, etchings and the complete series of 22 posters made by the 'cursed' artist on loan from the Toulouse-Lautrec Musée of Albi and important museums and international collections.
