      Pin-Ups: Toulouse-Lautrec And The Art Of Celebrity

      Pin-Ups: Toulouse-Lautrec and the Art of Celebrity will be the first exhibition held at the National Galleries of Scotland devoted to the art of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (1864-1901). Paris in the fin-de-siecle was known as the 'city of pleasure'; famed for its cabarets, dance halls and cafes. Most famous of all were the nightspots of the bohemian district of Montmartre, where Toulouse-Lautrec lived, worked and socialized, including the now legendary cafe-cabarets Le Moulin Rouge and Le Chat Noir. Pin-Ups: Toulouse Lautrec and the Art of Celebrity will focus on Toulouse-Lautrec's lithographic posters, portfolio prints and illustrations which made stars of Montmartre's venues and their entertainers - personalities such as Yvette Guilbert, Jane Avril and Aristide Bruant. Toulouse-Lautrec's career coincided with a revolutionary moment in the history of western printmaking - the development of the poster as a means of mass-marketing - and lithography and poster-making were central to his creative process from his first experiments in the medium in 1891 until his death in 1901.
