Toulouse-Lautrec Exhibit at the MFA

There is  currently a great Toulouse-Lautrec exhibit at the MFA (Museum of Fine Arts) here in Boston. When they first announced the exhibit, I wasn't that excited about it.  I had seen a wonderful Toulouse-Lautrec exhibit at MoMA (The Museum of Modern Art) in NYC in 2014 and I thought there was no way this one could top it. 

I was wrong.

This exhibit is an entirely different beast. The official title of the exhibit is "Toulouse-Lautrec and the Stars of Paris."  I would say about half of the exhibit is artwork by Toulouse-Lautrec's contemporaries.  This exhibit, therefore, tells a story about Toulouse-Lautrec's myriad influences.  I found it quite interesting.

I didn't take a ton of photos, but here are a few of my favorite pieces from the exhibit:

In the final room of the exhibit, I saw an item that looked familiar.  As it turns out, it's an item from my late Father's collection of optical toys.

It was lovely to see it on display in the museum.

The exhibit runs through August 4, 2019 and I think it's worth a visit if you're in the area!

Thanks for stopping by!
