Toulouse-Lautrec and Jane Avril: Beyond the Moulin Rouge

From 15/06/2011 at 23:00 to 17/09/2011 at 23:00

Nicknamed "La Mélinite" after a powerful form of explosive, the dancer Jane Avril was one of the stars of the Moulin Rouge.Her fame was assured by a series of dazzlingly inventive posters designed by the artist Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. Jane Avril became an emblematic figure in Lautrec’s world of dancers, cabaret singers, musicians and prostitutes.This landmark exhibition is the first to celebrate this remarkable creative
partnership which has to come to define the world of the Moulin Rouge. Bringing together Toulouse-Lautrec's most famous paintings, posters and prints from international collections, it captures the excitement and spectacle of bohemian Paris in the 1890s.
