14 December 2012 to 2 April 2013
National Gallery of Australia
Toulouse-Lautrec: Paris & the Moulin Rouge is the first major retrospective in Australia of the art of renowned French 19th century artist Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. Featuring more than 100 paintings, drawings, posters and prints, the exhibition is drawn from 30 public and private collections from around the world and will be on display in Canberra only.
The exhibition will trace Toulouse-Lautrec’s career from his earliest works to his extraordinary depictions of the Paris social scene of the late 1800s; the dance halls such as the Moulin Rouge, the cafe-concerts, the brothels and theatres. He did this in an insightful way, capturing the essence of his Parisian characters and haunts. His subject matter was to become thoroughly modern and he became an influential figure in the evolution of the art of the twentieth century.
Toulouse-Lautrec: Paris & the Moulin Rouge is presented by the National Gallery of Australia in conjunction with the year-long Centenary of Canberra 2013 program created under the helm of Creative Director Robyn Archer AO.
Special activities are planned for families including a Family Activity Room inside the exhibition catering for children aged 3 to 10 years old.
Take advantage of one of the great Toulouse-Lautrec Canberra accommodation packages available and make sure you explore the many other things to see and do in the nation’s capital.
