MFA's Toulouse-Lautrec and the Stars of Paris

From Sunday, April 7, 2019 to Sunday, August 4, 2019 April 7, 2019 August 4, 2019 Battery Wharf Hotel

“Toulouse-Lautrec and the Stars of Paris” explores the celebrity culture of Lautrec’s time and the artist’s fascination with the personal lives of les stars as well as the roles that they played.
