19th-Century Paris in Manchester

{ Through Sunday, January 7th, 2018 } The Currier Museum in Manchester displays posters and prints by Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec.

Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec captured 19th-century Paris like no other artist. His prints, posters, and ads continue to prove influential in commercial image-making and art today. The Paris of Toulouse-Lautrec: Prints and Posters from the Museum of Modern Art, a collection of his iconic depictions of Paris café culture and nightlife—highlighting locations such as the Moulin Rouge—is on view now through January 7th at the Currier Museum in Manchester, New Hampshire. The Currier exhibition is a New England exclusive; no other gallery in the region will host this collection of rarely displayed works from the MoMA’s collection. A $5 special exhibition fee is required in addition to general admission.

Featuring more than 100 objects, The Paris of Toulouse-Lautrec is one of the most comprehensive presentations of Lautrec’s work ever assembled. “Lautrec Late Nights” will offer tours, plays, poetry, and film screenings on the following Thursdays from 5 to 9 p.m.: October 19th and 26th, November 9th and 16th, and December 14th. Honoring popular cinematic depictions of Toulouse-Lautrec, Moulin Rouge (1952) will be screened on October 19, Can-Can will be screened on November 9, and Moulin Rouge! (2001) will be screened on December 14th. All screenings begin at 6:30 p.m.
