Toulouse-Lautrec and the Masters of Montmartre at the Victoria Art Gallery, Bath

15 February 2020 to 26 March 2020Visit website

Experience the sights and sounds of 19th-century Paris at a major new exhibition, Toulouse-Lautrec and the Masters of Montmartre, at the Victoria Art Gallery, Bath until 26 May.

For the first time in the UK, Lautrec’s complete collection of posters are exhibited together. More than 80 iconic posters, many of them rare and seen here for the first time, are on show. They are displayed in their full colourful glory, many in giant format from floor to ceiling, recreating how they were originally seen on the streets of Paris.

The exhibition includes 32 posters by Toulouse-Lautrec along with works by other celebrated poster artists of the day such as Alphonse Mucha, Pierre Bonnard and Théophile-Alexandre Steinlen.

Beginning in Montmartre in the 1880s, the exhibition examines Toulouse-Lautrec’s work as a printmaker and shines a light on the celebrated stars of the stage, and the styles and fashions of the time

Toulouse-Lautrec and the Masters of Montmartre is kindly supported by Arts Council England National Lottery Project Grants, 131 Art Happens with Art Fund donors, and the Friends of the Victoria Art Gallery.

Admission £6/£5.50 concessions. Save 10% and book in advance online.
