Exhibition: Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec
Toulose-Lautrec is called as 'the father of modern posters'. He shifted Bohemian life styles of Paris onto canvas. Most of his works are portraits of dancers, singers, prostitutes and circus members and he satirized hypocrisy and ignorance of pub visitors. His works are vibrating, clear and unique and he is the one who broke down the wall between pure art and commercial art. At this exhibition, 150 works owned by the Herakleidon Museum in Athens, Greece, are for the first time unveiled in South Korea. From posters and engravings to drawings, sketches, illustrations, watercolors, photos and video images, visitors are expected to appreciate the vibrations of the late 19th century Paris around Montmartre and Moulihn Rouge.
