Aristide Bruant Dans Son Cabaret. 1893.
Bruant’s strong, forceful, and in many ways vulgar style was ideally suited to the intimate cabarets where fashionable society went “slumming” for thrills. Lautrec captures this brutal quality of the entertainer and the disdain with which he treated his audiences by having him show us the broad of his back. The red scarf forms an exclamation point that punctuates the black expanse while the pose itself makes a complete, self-contained statement—Toulouse-Lautrec at his very best. This is the rare proof before the addition of letters.
