Jane Avril in the Entrance to the Moulin Rouge, 1892, Toulouse Lautrec

Jane Avril was not only an emblematic figure in Toulouse-Lautrec’s world of artists, dancers, cabaret actors, musicians and courtesans, she was also one of his closest friends. 

This exhibition is the first to celebrate their important creative collaboration. It examines Avril as a private individual, looks at the staging of her public identity and reveals the range of Lautrec’s responses to his muse: Their remarkable creative partnership captured the excitement and spectacle of bohemian Paris.
