Le Divan Japonais by Toulouse-Lautrec art print
This is a reproduction of a lithograph poster made by Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec to advertise le Divan Japonais, a popular venue in Paris. The image depicts the famous dancer Jane Avril in the audience with her husband, the writer Edouard Dejardin. They are enjoying a performance by Yvette Guilbert.
Toulouse-Lautrec became something of a celebrity in the Montmartre district of Paris where he lived and worked, relishing the hedonistic bohemian life there. His posters for famous performance venues such as the Moulin Rouge or the Jardin du Paris are some of the most recognisable images to emerge from fin-de-siècle France.
