Posters of Paris: Toulouse-Lautrec and His Contemporaries
in Chilton Gallery II and Focus Gallery I
December 20, 2012
to 9 PM
1717 North Harwood Street , Dallas, TX
$9 - $14
Beginning with the early designs of Jules Chéret—the “father of the poster”—the exhibition explores the earliest days of the affiche artistique (artistic poster) and its flowering in Paris, first under Chéret in the 1870s and 1880s, and then with a new generation of artists including Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Pierre Bonnard, and Edouard Vuillard, artists who brought the poster to new heights in the 1890s.
Posters of Paris: Toulouse-Lautrec and His Contemporaries examines the story of the French artistic poster in all its complexity. The show will highlight artists well known to the public—such as Toulouse-Lautrec, Alphonse Mucha, and Théophile-Alexandre Steinlin—as well as names less familiar but equally powerful in their impact.
Closed on Thanksgiving Day (November 22, 2012), Christmas Day (December 25, 2012), and New Year's Day (January 1, 2013)
