Toulouse-Lautrec and the Masters of Montmartre

Toulouse-Lautrec and the Masters of Montmartre will bring the sights and sounds of Lautrec’s thrilling Bohemian Paris to life. The exhibition will revisit the ‘street art’ of the era showcasing over 80 works by Toulouse-Lautrec, Mucha, Steinlen and more. 

Evening events unique to this exhibition will echo the joie de vivre of the Belle Époque and Toulouse-Lautrec's Paris. These will feature music and entertainment to celebrate how visual art, music and dance were intertwined in this thrilling era. The Gallery will give everyone the chance to participate, with a multilingual audio guide, music from the era, a display of personal items from the performers and a dressing up area.

This exhibition is kindly supported by Arts Council England National Lottery Project Grants, our 131 Art Happens donors, and the Friends of the Victoria Art Gallery.
