Toulouse Lautrec - Moulin Rouge nightlife
Type of Spiritual Experience
Another set of wonderful paintings that show his ability to perceive movement, mood and atmosphere and capture it in simple lines and colour.
He perceives without judgement, in fact with a great dealof joy and affection, and then translates this into a colour palette that reflects this perception and a composition that captures the life. It is a celebration of diversity again as there is no conventional 'beauty' here, but Henri has seen beauty in the scene. The paintings are
- Marcelle Lender dancing in the bolero in Chilperic 1895
- La Goulue arriving with two women 1892
- The Dance 1890
- The Promenoir 1895
