Toulouse Lautrec Edinburgh Exhibition

Featuring works from Toulouse-Lautrec and his contemporaries, including Jules Chéret, Pierre Bonnard and Théophile Alexandre Steinlen, the Toulouse Lautrec Edinburgh exhibition, Pin-Ups, focuses on works that turned the limelight on Montmartre, its venues and its entertainers.

Lautrec’s time in the bohemian district of Montmartre coincided with the development of modern printmaking and an explosion of nightlife culture, which are depicted in his free-flowing simplified linear works, often evoking the sorrow and humour behind the images.

The artists, cabarets, cafes and entertainers of Montmartre fascinated Lautrec, and his ability to capture the essence of the scenes in posters gave widespread impact to his works, although his status as an artist was disputed during his own lifetime.
