Foothills Art Center is delighted to present the major traveling exhibition, Toulouse-Lautrec and La Vie Moderne: Paris 1880-1910. The exhibition celebrates the broad spectrum of avant-garde artists at the center of the Parisian artistic and cultural scene during the turn of the 19th century, an era labeled by contemporaries as “La Belle Époque.” Highlighting the work of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec and 94 of his contemporaries, the exhibition features cabaret posters, landscapes, portraits and scenes of Paris.
With Toulouse-Lautrec as the central focus, the exhibition places him in the context of other great artists of the period such as Edouard Vuillard, Pierre Bonnard, Juan Gris, and Mary Cassatt, to name just a few. This exhibition is organized and circulated by Art Services International, Alexandria, Virginia. His Excellency Franҫois Delattre, Ambassador of France to the United States of America is Honorary Patron of the exhibition.
