Immortalized by the Ultimate Parisian Bohemian Scenester
Visit late 19th century Paris through the Belle Époque’s most famous scenester and master artist, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. Experience the famed Parisian Bohemian world through this Post-Impressionist’s eyes in paintings, drawings, and famous lithographic posters that identified and mass-produced the bohemian nightlife, a la Moulin Rouge, all things cabaret, and risqué. Toulouse-Lautrec erased the line between fine and commercial art as he was commissioned to advertise his own favorite nightspots, cabarets, concert halls, and theaters, which some are still popular today. Step back into the Belle Époque and experience for yourself the height of bohemian glamour in the romantic city of lights, Paris, France. Visit the gallery which is 45 minutes south of Orlando at the Polk Museum of Art at Florida Southern College in Lakeland, Florida. This exhibition runs until May 23, 2021. Admission is free Tuesday through Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., but reservations are required.
