Toulouse-Lautrec is a hardcover book filled with colored reproductions of the grand works of Toulouse-Lautrec. Text is in French.
Henri Marie Raymond de Toulouse-Lautrec-Monfa was a French painter, printmaker, draugtsman, caricaturist, and illustrator whose immersion in the colorful and theatrical life of Paris in the late 19th century allowed him to produce a collection of enticing, elegant, and provocative images of the modern, sometimes decadent, affairs of those times. Toulouse-Lautrec is among the best-known painters of the Post-Impressionist period.
Toulouse-Lautrec measures 30.5 x 28 cm (12 x 11 inches) and is in good condition, consistent with age and use.
Toulouse-Lautrec comes from Bouquiniste Gury Handan.
The Bouquinistes (book sellers) have been setting up along the Seine since the 16th century. They sell everything from books to photographs, watercolors, old magazines and advertisements, souvenir trinkets and more. Today, there are 227 book sellers selling from the green boxes. They’re located from the Quai du Louvre to Pont Marie on the Right Bank and from Quai Voltaire to Quai de la Tournelle on the Left Bank.
The lockdowns and lack of tourism in Paris due to the pandemic has been devastating for the Bouqinistes.
In the spirit of the season, the Bouquinistes Auctions are meant to do a little bit extra to give back to the Bouquinistes. We've been able to arrange meetings during the lockdown to bring a selection of products online. Each product is priced at cost. 100% of the additional revenues generated at auction will go directly back to the Bouquiniste.
Each item is one of a kind and was hand-picked in Paris.
If you're interested in shopping products not at auction, Molly from French Face Co. has an additional selection of products that we've curated.
