Our spotlight on Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (1864-1901) examines the work of one of the most well-known post-Impressionist artists. Through a comprehensive but accessible introduction to the oeuvre of the artist, we will explore Toulouse-Lautrec’s contribution to modern art history. While analyzing autobiographical information to better grasp the inspiration sources of the painter, we will proceed to an in-depth analysis of his most iconic works depicting Parisian nightlife.

Toulouse-Lautrec’s paintings and drawings of singers, dancers, dandies, prostitutes, pimps, and gentlemen are very precise studies of characters, suffused with reality and based on precise observation. All his figures are stripped of accidental detail and reduced to the essence of the character. Though sometimes verging on caricature, his figures are depicted in all their individuality. In this seminar, we will examine Toulouse-Lautrec’s precise depictions of subjects in their work environment as well as his compassionate and intimate studies of the Parisian brothels and nightlife.

Led by an expert on modern and contemporary art and published author, Dr. Timea Andrea Lelik, this interactive seminar will explore the contribution of this great artist to art history. Designed to inform curiosity as well as future travels, participants will come away with an increased understanding and appreciation of the most iconic works by Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec and his portrayal of Parisian society.

Henri 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.

Getting to know Toulouse-Lautrec

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.

A Great First Experience

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.
