Here are some of my favorite pictures from the exhibit Toulouse-Lautrec's Paris at the San Diego Museum of Art, which I visited with my mother-in-law last week. I know it's not strictly fashion-related, and yet in my mind it is because I think, Look at what people were wearing a little more than a hundred years ago. These works are from the late 1890's and these were the styles of the time.
I love vintage posters and for me Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec is the king of this kind of art.
Works shown here:
Jane Avril, 1899
Divon Japonais, 1893
Troupe de Mlle. Eglantine, 1896
If you're in San Diego this is worth a visit. The museum has an excellent collection of the artist's work and this exhibit is on view until December 12, 2010.
