Le Vache Enragée. 1896.
Rare first state, before letters.
This poster was created to advertise Willette’s magazine, La Vache Enragée, which lasted for only a single year. Wittrock, who rates the rarity of this state as "uncommon," also indicates that "the image in the poster was drawn by Toulouse-Lautrec in imitation of the style of A. Willette" (p. 808). This is one of the few Lautrec posters with movement: the runaway cow is the centerpiece of a remarkable caricature depicting sheer panic in some, curious complacency in others – an obvious reflection of the world that swirled around the artist.
