Toulouse-Lautrec, born into an aristocratic family from the south of France, came to Paris to pursue a career as an artist. He was drawn to Montmartre, a quarter of Paris known for its bohemian lifestyle.
When the famous Moulin Rouge cabaret opened in 1889, its owner, Joseph Oller, commissioned Lautrec to do a series of posters featuring artists performing there. Posters created by Lautrec for performers such as La Goulue (creator of the can-can), Jane Avril (a well-known dancer) and actor Aristide Bruant are considered among the greatest posters ever created.
They evoke the spirit of one of the most romantic periods of modern times: the belle epoque.
