Toulouse-Lautrec’s posters will whisk you back to the boho nightclubs of late-1800s Paris — and might make you blush

(Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Private collection)

If you ever find yourself stopped on a street corner admiring the poster for a DIY house show pasted to a telephone pole, thank Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, the 19th-century Parisian artist who turned poster-making into a legitimate art form. Through April, you can see the original posters that made notorious Parisian nightclubs like the Moulin Rouge famous, in The Phillips Collection’s latest exhibition, “Toulouse-Lautrec Illustrates the Belle Epoque.”
