Very interesting seminar on Toulouse-Lautrec.

Another fascinating installment of this series. I especially loved the section on the posters and his compassion for those less fortunate. Wonderful talk from beginning to end.
As she has done with the other artists in this series, Timea has stripped away the preconceived notions about Toulouse-Lautrec and shown us who the real man, the real artist was. Her ability to state sad facts, without being sentimental, is quite uncanny. She gave us a real picture of the life of this complex little man, who had small legs but a giant heart. As in the other talks she's given, her use of video clips to help create a sense of Belle Époque Paris added tremendously to a rich, yet sobering, talk.
This was the first lecture I attended with Dr. Lelik. Her goal was to have us know Toulouse-Lautrec not only as an artist, but as a person. She succeeded on both counts. I will seek out other lectures with her. I recommend you do the same.
