January 8, 2015, 1:30 p.m. — Divas and the Demimonde in Toulouse-Lautrec’s Paris
This gallery session explores the key role of the fascinating, creative, sometimes dangerous women who served as Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec’s muses. The artist celebrated the city’s demimonde, and these “divas” that so inspired Toulouse-Lautrec continue to fascinate us today.
In conjunction with the exhibition The Paris of Toulouse-Lautrec: Prints and Posters
Gallery Sessions, impromptu interactions facilitated by Museum educators that explore the creative process, art history, and the experience of art, take place daily in select galleries. Groups meet in the galleries noted on the schedule. Gallery Sessions are free with Museum admission. No registration is required.
Sign language–interpreted Gallery Sessions are held every fourth Sunday of the month at 1:30 p.m. FM headsets for sound amplification are available for all talks.
