Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec: from February 23, a great artist at Palazzo Roverella

The wait is almost over, the annual spring appointment with great international art is around the corner, and Palazzo Roverella is getting ready to host the exhibition of a major European art figure.

We are in Paris in the late 19th century, a meeting place for artists from all over Europe: realists, impressionists, and symbolists share experiences and moments of daily life in the gathering places of the time, bistros, department stores, cafes, and intellectual gatherings of all kinds, day and night.

Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (1864-1901) is one of the most representative protagonists of that late-century Paris, and the exhibition in the enchanting setting of Palazzo Roverella, from February 23, 2024, to June 30, 2024, is dedicated to him.

A French artist among the major figures of post-impressionism, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec was one of the most important transitional figures between impressionism and expressionism, one of the sharpest and most interesting draftsmen of his time, a frequenter of bohemian gatherings, café-chantants, and brothels.

The exhibition is an opportunity to reconstruct the Parisian environment in which Toulouse-Lautrec operated, comparing him with realists, impressionists, and symbolists, but above all, it becomes a stage for his highly innovative art, going beyond the approach that often reduces Toulouse-Lautrec to a creator of posters, focusing on his activity as a painter, with paintings, pastels, and drawings from important American, European, and French museums.

60 works by the artist, out of more than 200 overall, evoke the vibrancy of the Parisian art scene.

And it doesn’t end there. Palazzo Roverella will offer a program of special events, giving visitors the opportunity to delve into every aspect of the life and work of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec.
