Toulouse-Lautrec & the Belle Époque
Jun 20, 2020
- Sep 13, 2020
Toulouse-Lautrec & the Belle Époque will be on display at Polk Museum of Art at Florida Southern College from June 20 - September 13.
Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (1864-1901) is one of the most familiar names of the Post-Impressionist era, and his depictions of life in fin-de-siècle Paris remain among the most popular and recognizable today. Toulouse-Lautrec's own biographical renown may be outshone only by the renown of his most reproduced imagery, namely his posters representing the world of bohemian Parisian nightlife in the final decade of the 19th century, the so-called Belle Époque.
This June, Toulouse-Lautrec promises to lure local audiences into his world, albeit much closer to home, as he takes over the Museum in the form of an international exhibition that includes more than 215 works of art and artifacts from the artist's startlingly brief but transformative decade-long career.
Polk Museum of Art Hours: Tuesday - Saturday 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m., Sunday 1:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. Closed Monday.
