1896, printed 1946


Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec
French, 1864-1901

About this artwork

Lautrec also produced a number of striking images of identifiable audience members putting themselves on display in their loges, or theater boxes. This seemingly incomplete impression comes from one plate of a multicolor zincograph. It shows the unlikely pairing of the courtesan Emilienne d’Alençon with Lautrec’s cousin, the doctor Gabriel Tapié de Céleyran at the Cabaret des Décadents. The zinc plates are all now at the Art Institute of Chicago, where this impression was printed.
