Feeling like your hit of Paris but can’t get there? Don’t worry, the National Galley of Australia is hosting the Toulouse-Lautrec: Paris and Moulin Rouge exhibition. 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 artist’s 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.
