Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (1864 - 1901) was a gifted artist and chronicler of fin-de-siècle Paris. He caricatured the supposedly elitist audience of the establishments, at the same time elevating dancers and prostitutes to the stars of his works. Lautrec was one of the first artists to use lithography for his own purposes. With oversized formats, an extraordinary colour palette and technical innovations, he revolutionised poster art.
The exhibition "La Bohéme" is entirely devoted to this fascinating art form. In addition to world-famous classics by Toulouse-Lautrec, the show with over a hundred exhibits holds many exciting discoveries from his artistic environment.
