Art Appreciation - Toulouse-Lautrec
About this event :
This month, the Art Appreciation group is visiting Bern to see the exhibition of Henri Toulouse Lautrec (1864-1901) at the Kunstmuseum. The exhibition presents his work, including paintings, drawings, lithographs and posters against a background of historical photographs which relate to the subjects.
The Museum owns a painting that features a portrait of Misia Natanson who was also painted by other contemporary artists, including Edouard Vuillard, Pierre Bonnard and Felix Vallotton, and a section of the exhibition is devoted to other works portraying her and her circle. The photographs are taken by Lautrec’s friends and fellow artists and include photos of the artist in unusual outfits, something he enjoyed doing.
We plan to leave Lausanne on the 9:20 train, visit the exhibition and have lunch together, afer which everyone is free to visit the sights (or shops!) of Bern. Please sign up on here with the “I’m attending”-Button or let us know if you would like to join this excursion at firstname.lastname@example.org.
