The colorful posters of the late 19th century can be seen until May 28th.
More than 50 lithographs of the post-impressionist, the graphics and the advertising poster’s master Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec are presented in the space “Art Bank” on Nevsky prospect. Among them are posters of famous Parisian institutions, portraits of coquettish actresses and overseen street scenes conveying the cheerful serene spirit of frivolous Paris of the Beautiful Era.
Each of the works takes the viewer to the French capital of the late XIX century with its noisy cabarets, circuses and theatres. However, the artist had never had illusions about the brilliant tinsel of Montmartre: he confidently tore off the masks and reflected the true faces of French capital in his works.
The exhibition will last until May 28, 2017.
