In October 2014, the Bank Austria Kunstforum will present the first full retrospective of the work of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, in honour of the 150th anniversary of the artist’s birth. Bringing together works loaned by collections all over the world, the exhibition casts light on the sheer variety of Toulouse-Lautrec’s work and his extraordinary talent for observation, as can be seen in his paintings, works on paper, lithographs and posters. It offers an opportunity to discover the lesser-known Toulouse-Lautrec as well as to see the large, eye-catching posters for decadent Montmartre nightspots that made him famous.
