El Dorado Toulouse-Lautrec Greeting Card

El Dorado Toulouse-Lautrec Greeting Card

£2.99

Single greeting card with envelope featuring artwork El Dorado: Aristide Bruant by Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec.

Aristide Bruant was a star of Montmartre. A singer and comedian, he appeared at clubs such as Le Chat Noir dressed in his trademark red shirt, black velvet jacket, high boots, and a long red scarf. He was one of Lautrec's first friends among the performers of Montmartre.

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.
