Situated in Canberra, The National Gallery of Australia holds the national art collection, including the largest display of Australian Indigenous art in the world. Fans of Parisian painter Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec are in for a visual treat with the Gallery's current exhibition 'Toulouse-Lautrec" Paris & the Moulin Rouge' currently on display thru April 2, 2013.
Spanning Toulouse-Lautrec's entire career, from his early years to the famous depictions of cabaret life immortalized in posters, this exhibition marks the first time that the Australian public is able to view the works of the influential French painter and relish in his raw observations of Parisian life in the 19th Century.
Watch the video below for a short study of one of Lautrec's most recognizable paintings, that of the Montmartre cabaret singer Aristide Bruant.
