    Default Toulouse-Lautrec Exhibition - Canberra

    For all you lovers of French art and culture, a major exhibition is coming to the National Gallery of Australia. December to April.

    Toulouse-Lautrec is the National Gallery of Australiaís next summer exhibition and will run from 14 December 2012 to 2 April 2013. The Australian public have never before had the opportunity to see a major retrospective exhibition devoted to the art of French 19th century artist Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec in painting, drawing, posters and prints.


    Toulouse-Lautrec will examine the artistís abilities as an acute observer of Parisian life, his skill as a draughtsman, his experimentation in composition and the brilliance of his technical execution in all media. The exhibition will shed new light on Toulouse-Lautrec through an examination of his involvement in Parisian cultureóthe high life and the low life.



    The exhibition will trace Toulouse-Lautrecís career from his earliest works to his extraordinary depictions of the Paris social scene, the dance halls, the cafť-concerts, the brothels and theatres. This he did in an insightful way, capturing the essence of his Parisian characters and haunts. Toulouse-Lautrecís subject matter was to become thoroughly modern and he became an influential figure in the evolution of the art of the twentieth century.

    Sounds like fodder for an AF group attendance.

    Be nice to pick a day to fill the car park with French cars... have a sausage sizzle, drag along a few of the fashion writers from mags like Vouge.

    OK, sounds like we have three interested bods already. I'd be happy to have passagers ou copilotes.


    Dave, what about an EOI re actual dates, in the Social Forum?

    I am surprised that Toulouse-Lautrec is sufficiently politically correct to be exhibited in Canberra. After all, he spent a lot of time painting brothel employees.
    Worse, he never drove a CitroŽn.

    He's not, but it's cheaper than paying a study trip for the entire aus parliament to France. Shhh!

    Can we also have a picnic in the car park. Quality bread, coffee, fromage (almost typed cheese, merde) and a small wine. Tour the gallery and then party hard with a couple of Absinthe or several more wines. Possibly a picture in the style of Toulouse-Lautrec?

    And of course play the traditional French game of "Tenez le Bougicord".

    Thanks Addo! I knew was opening myself up for a shot. And what a killer back hand on the Totem tennis set.

    I reckon he might have painted pictures of them if he'd lived longer than his 36 years!
