Educator Resource Packet: Equestrienne (At the Cirque Fernando) by Henri Toulouse-Lautrec

Share


Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec

Thinly and rapidly painted, Equestrienne (At the Cirque Fernando) (1887-88) has the confident, improvisational quality of a drawing. Its subject is the Circus Fernando, one of the first permanent circuses in Paris, which provided rich inspiration to many artists, both before and after Toulouse-Lautrec portrayed it. This teaching packet includes an essay, discussion questions, activity ideas, a glossary, and an image of the artwork.
