Film Screening: The Post-Impressionists: Toulouse-Lautrec
Apr 25, 2013
1:00 pm until 5:00 pm
1 and 4 p.m. screenings
Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec was ultimately a tragic figure in the history of art. Crippled by an ill-proportioned body, he lived for just 36 years before the effects of alcoholism and syphilis took their final toll. His dissolute life, spent in the brothels and nightclubs of late 19th century Paris, provided the subject matter for his finest work. These radical, boldly colored paintings and posters of the famous Moulin Rouge nightclub captured the energy of Parisian nightlife. This fascinating program includes all-new location footage, re-creations, reconstructions, studies of his work, commentary, analyses from leading authorities, and discussions led by art historians and scholars.
