< em>Toulouse-Lautrec is the National Gallery of Australia’s next summer exhibition and will run from 14 December 2012 to 2 April 2013. The Austral ian public have never before had the opportunity to see a major retrospecti ve exhibition devoted to the art of French 19th century artist Henri de Tou louse-Lautrec in painting\, drawing\, posters and prints.

\n

To ulouse-Lautrec will examine the artist’s abilities as an acute observer of Parisian life\, his skill as a draughtsman\, his experimentation in composi tion and the brilliance of his technical execution in all media. The exhibi tion will shed new light on Toulouse-Lautrec through an examination of his involvement in Parisian culture—the high life and the low life.

\n

The exhibition will trace Toulouse-Lautrec’s career from his earliest works to his extraordinary depictions of the Paris social scene\, the dance halls\, the café-concerts\, the brothels and theatres. This he did in an insightfu l way\, capturing the essence of his Parisian characters and haunts. Toulou se-Lautrec’s subject matter was to become thoroughly modern and he became a n influential figure in the evolution of the art of the twentieth century.< /p> DTEND:20130402 DTSTAMP:20140423T135640 DTSTART:20121214 GEO:-35.3009116;149.1340781 LOCATION:National Gallery of Australia\,Parkes Place\, Parkes \nCanberra \ , ACT 2600 SEQUENCE:0 SUMMARY:Paris & the Moulin Rouge\, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec UID:245413 END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTEND:20121214T170000 DTSTAMP:20140423T135640 DTSTART:20121214T100000 GEO:-35.3009116;149.1340781 LOCATION:National Gallery of Australia\,Parkes Place\, Parkes \nCanberra \ , ACT 2600 SEQUENCE:0 SUMMARY:Paris & the Moulin Rouge\, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec UID:245414 END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
