Artists & Styles

An album of the stars of Paris nightlife, as seen by Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec - who captured their performances in great works of art and helped make them famous This tour of the Parisian scene focuses on six performers who were depicted in and in some senses defined by Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec's renderings - Yvette Guilbert, Jane Avril, Aristide Bruant, Marcelle Lender, May Belfort and Loïe Fuller - and explores how the performers and the artist collaborated in exploiting new mass media to create a new stardom. Lavishly illustrated with reproductions of iconic images along with rarely seen sketches, and illuminated by insightful essays, this volume shines a spotlight on the stars of the Paris stage, the birth of celebrity culture and the brilliance of the artist who gave them enduring life.
