In October 2014, the Bank Austria Kunstforum Wien is showing the first comprehensive retrospective of the work of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec ever held in Austria. The 150th birthday of this spectacular artist is a fitting occasion for holding this exhibition, in which loans from international collections present Lautrec’s multifaceted oeuvre and his extraordinary observational skills in different genres – paintings, works on paper, lithographs, and posters.
Besides the illustrious »loud« posters for the pleasure palaces of Montmartre, the foundation of Lautrec’s international fame, we can also discover the lesser known Toulouse Lautrec: paintings in muted colors facilitating an intimate form of portraying human psychology, drawings with pen and pencil, ideal for a pithy characterization of the subject. The linking and juxtaposition of different modes of expression, themes, and concepts are a reflection of the artist’s complex figure on the brink between two centuries. A unique publication, which illuminates new aspects of one of the great protagonists at the dawning of Modernism.
