Toulouse Lautrec Folder with over 50 illustrations
This beautifully presented French boxed Folder contains an unbelievable collage of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec works. There are over 50 pages in this folder which was collated 15 December 1955. Each page presents a reproduction of one of his works with on the back of the page information and back ground on the piece. It also contains extensive info on the man himself. What a grand item for the collectors. The Folder measures 34 x 24 x h 4cm and weighs 1990 grms. Unfortunately this brings the item into a 5000 grms parcel as here in France the postal tier goes from 2000 grms to 5000 grms. So perhaps you something else in my shop and we can combine the items. Postage from France included.
Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec was a 19th-century French painter, illustrator and poster artist, known for his atmospheric depiction of the Parisian underworld. He was born 24 November 1864 and died 9 September 1901. Besides his work as an artist, his height (only 152 cm), and his scandalous behaviour in society brought him notoriety. A nightlife-loving aristocrat, he was a VIP at the Moulin Rouge, and was the first to blur the lines between fine art and advertising. This is an extraordinary shift in the history of art, obliterating the boundaries between high (painting, drawing, sculpture) and low (posters, logos and other forms of visual culture) art. There was nothing that anti-conformist and lover of life and women Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec disliked more than narrow-minded and prejudiced views. He was a free man, intent on leading a happy and fantastical life.
