One of the greatest lithographs Toulouse-Lautrec ever produced, and one of the rarest: this is 1 of just 100 signed impressions, and the first time we've seen it in 76 auctions. The contrast between bright, solid coloration and subtle, texture pastels is thrilling, as is the composition – an angular motion of tension and strangeness, but dappled by colors and forms into a charged and harmonious whole. Lautrec is portraying, on the right, William Tom Warrener (1861-1934), an English painter, "who has been a pupil of the Académie Julian and had lived in Paris since the mid-1880s; he was a frequent visitor to the Moulin-Rouge" (Adriani, p. 30). The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts adds that Warrener was the son of a rich coal dealer, and returned to the family business after his sojourn in painting. [Lautrec] gave the color an emotional dimension expressing the man's attraction to and desire for the two young women he's approaching. In this work Toulouse-Lautrec anticipates, in an unexpected way, Matisse's use of color in 1905" (Lautrec/Montreal, p. 30).
