Description

Our Toulouse-Lautrec Scarf is based on some of the artists bold Montmartre inspired lithographs. During the 1890s, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (French, 18641901) virtually reinvented lithography, a printmaking medium that had been introduced in France a century earlier. His famed posters and prints, made to publicize Parisian performers and nightspots, including the Moulin Rouge, demonstrate Lautrecs dramatically expressive command of the lithographic medium, which he placed in the service of the popular press and the Parisian entertainment industry.

Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (French, 18641901) was particularly drawn to the diversity of the Moulin Rouge's audience, relying on recognizable Monmartrois typesthe cancan dancer, the young working-class woman, the bourgeois manto convey both the sexual freedom and the spectacle associated with the quarter. Combining commercial advertising techniques with avant- garde compositions characterized by cut-off angles, simplified silhouettes, and flat areas of pure color, he created bold and vivid lithographs of Montmartre's most celebrated performers. Employing methods of caricature with a rapid execution, he exposed the artificiality, anxiety, and social tension that characterized fin-de-sicle Parisian society.
