The institution is celebrating its 140th anniversary with an exhibit of works by the famous French painter
The Reial Cercle Artístic, in collaboration with BMR Cultura, is presenting an exhibition with pieces by Henri Toulouse-Lautrec (L'Albi, France, 1864 - Château Malromé, France, 1901). The exhibit will be on until 19 September. Curated by Rosa Perales Piqueres, it is part of a series of activities to commemorate the 140th anniversary of the institution.
Whoever visits will be able to see some of the most well-known works of Toulouse-Lautrec, such as the ones dedicated to the circus world. With characters like the clown Cha-O-Kao, the ringmaster Monsieur Loyal or the clowns Footit and Chocolat, the painter found a way to express an art stripped of morality and free of prejudice... deeply human. Just like for other artists from the end of the 20th and the beginning of the 21st century, the circus was an inspiration source to Toulouse-Lautrec and a reflection of his passion for the nightlife. The works presented at the Reial Cercle Artístic are drawings edited after the painter's death by his friend Maurice Joyant and art dealer Adolphe Goupil. They were made using the bichromate rubber technique, which makes the line tracing ever so visible, incorporates colour and creates an optical effect that simulates the strokes of the original work. The exhibit also counts with some of the most well-known posters by Toulouse-Lautrec as well as a series dedicated to some of the most famous faces of the time in the Montmartre area.
