This lithographic poster was designed after Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec for an exhibition of the artist's graphic works at the Galerie Des Ponchettes in 1954. The original work was printed in 1892 and was entitled "Au Moulin Rouge, la Goulue et sa soeur ".
After being ostracized from high-society because of his physical appearance, Toulouse-Lautrec developed an affinity for liquor and brothels. This later affected his art as many of his subjects appear as prostitutes. Although his most common medium was paint on canvas, he was no stranger to lithography. He created 363 posters and prints in his career. Toulouse-Lautrec is held in the highest regard of the post-impressionist movement along with his contemporaries, Cézanne, Van Gogh and Gauguin.
