Le Café Concert. 1893.
The Café Concert was the archetypal form of entertainment in Toulouse-Lautrec's Montmartre: a constantly changing, but familiar rotation of nightly performances, in intimate settings and attended by a cross-section of Parisian society. In 1893, the publishing house L'Estampe Originale decided to commemorate this emerging aspect of Parisian popular culture with a published portfolio of 11 lithographic prints from Toulouse-Lautrec and 11 by H-G Ibels, in an edition of just 500. Lautrec's subjects include Aristide Bruant, Jane Avril, Caudieux, Yvette Guilbert, Mary Hamilton, Paula Brébion, Edmée Lescot, and Madame Abdala. This portfolio contains the complete introductory text by Georges Montorgueil.
